brown bag epistemological foundations

Category: Research Events

To foster the research climate within the school, the Research Dean’s Office set up a series of research brown bags. The purpose of these research brown bags is to highlight current cross-disciplinary research at Vlerick Business School and to create opportunities for sharing recent research insights. Through videoconferencing it is possible to follow the brown bags from Ghent, Leuven or Brussels. They can be attended, free of charge, by all people from Vlerick, parent universities or other academic institutions.

The seminar was chaired by Walter Van Dyck and focused on "Epistemological foundations of transdisciplinary research: The case of the management of innovation".
Abstract: The Innovation Management Research Platform promotes transdisciplinary research fostering collaboration across competence centers. Doing so requires a sound epistemological foundation. Hence, Mode 1 research defines and solves research problems predominantly within the cognitive context of one academic management research discipline.  In contrast, Mode 2 research produces reflexive transdisciplinary knowledge in the context of application and practice. In this session we contrast these two research paradigms and discuss their rationale and application potential in the field of innovation management research.
