Innovation research focuses on studies of regional innovation systems and innovation processes between private companies and public organisations. Employee-driven innovation has been a focus area in 2014, 2015, and 2016.

Over the course of 2016. we conducted research concerning: 
  • The municipalities’ strategies for using EU programmes as an instrument in their innovation efforts.
  • Innovation processes, including innovation strategies, innovation management, dissemination of innovations
  • Global innovation networks
  • Employee-initiated innovation, including
    • Local identity as a driving force for employee-driven innovation in established Rogaland Companies
    • How to further develop employee-driven innovation as an incorporated work practice in the municipalities’ operations 
  • How the marine sector can obtain more added value out of the investments in marine research and development, via that research-based knowledge is put into use to a greater extent by companies, as an integral part of their innovation processes
