My research focuses on the factors that determinate innovation outcomes. I am interested in complex systems of innovation that is made up by private and public actors, stakeholders and governed by formal and informal institutions. The industrial PhD I am studying addresses the use of Public-Private Partnerships and Public Procurement for Innovation as tools for developing and scaling the use of technology in cities. I will be investigating various partnership models between cities and external actors, as well as investigating the role played by public procurement budgets in pushing the innovation development. As an Industrial PhD, I spend half of time at Copenhagen Solutions Lab, the City of Copenhagen’s Smart City governance unit, who is my host organization. The PhD is part of the Danish Innovation Fund’s call for Public Industrial PhD's, focusing on innovation in public organizations.
