A committee consisting of Harry Boer (Aalborg), Mariano Corso (Milan), Klaasjan Visscher (Twente and editor of Creativity and Innovation Management) and Patricia Wolf (Lucerne) selected the two best paper awards of the 15th CINet conference, hosted by Corvinus University of Budapest, Hungary, on 7-9 September.
Lara Agostini, Roberto Filippini and Anna Nosella won the John Bessant Best Paper Award. Their paper “Towards an integrated view of ambidexterity: and empirical investigation” addresses three key aspects of continuous innovation, namely ambidextrous organization, its effects on explorative and exploitative innovation, and the mediating role of internal networking. The committee praised the relevance of the research, the rigor of the research design, the robustness of the findings and, especially, and the clear contribution of the paper to existing theory.
