PhD, University of Adelaide Business School (Australia)
Her PhD topic was: What are the key factors in managing collaborative innovation networks and how do they lead to successful technology transfer? Networks comprising government, university and business involved in innovation have grown in international prominence. Despite increases in these phenomena, few studies identify their critical success factors. Consequently, her research used both qualitative and quantitative methodologies to contribute to theory development in various literatures including innovation and technology management, marketing and information systems. The study also provided guidelines for practitioners involved in multi-sectoral collaboration and innovation. The study spanned various industries including ICT/ defence, biotechnology, nanotechnology and wine.
