Managing In-Between

Uncovering the innovative space in-between organizations

The purpose of the Managing In-Between (MIB) research group is to further the theoretical and practical knowledge and understanding about managing spaces in between actors, specifically in the context of collaborative innovation. Such spaces can be understood as “proto-institutions”, a form of emergent organizing that challenges previous perceptions about (innovation) management. With our research we want to contribute to the emerging research field around multi-actor collaboration for innovation. The MIB group’s expertise range from Organizational Behavior, Innovation management, Organization theory to Social anthropology, Organizational creativity and Design theory. MIB’s research approach is collaborative, working closely with actors and organizations, e.g. arenas, science parks and centers, to also ensure practical relevance.
