The paper was published at the 24th IMP-conference in Uppsala, Sweden in 2008.
Innovation networks seem to require certain amount of direction and orchestration so that multiple actors can be efficiently connected. However, what this task means from the knowledge mobility point of view, and what the value is that the orchestrator can bring to that activity, could be described more profoundly. In this paper we focus on finding out what the facilitators and inhibitors of knowledge mobility in innovation network are, and how the orchestrator can influence that mobility. Our goal is to build on a prior theoretical model, augment it, and provide propositions for future empirical studies.
