Sprache des Tagungstitel:
Collaborations with organizations from other industries are advantageous as ?industry-blindness? and ?bounded rationality? can be overcome and ideas for breakthrough innovations can be fostered. However, these very different partners also pose various challenges. Findings in the areas of innovation have shown that intermediaries can contribute significantly to the success of collaborations. The aim of this research is to investigate what contributions intermediaries can provide in the different phases of the development of cross-industry teams.
