Our collaborator Robin Gustafsson defended recently his PhD thesis Awareness, Institutional Entrepreneurship, and Contradictions in Emerging Technological Fields. His thesis studies the emergence of awareness and institutional entrepreneurship in novel technological fields (such as functional foods, well-being technologies, electronic publishing and printing, and modular constructional steel), and the contradictions that result from emergence. The thesis further advances understanding about emergence and socio-cognitive dynamics in novel technological fields.
In the defense, professor Nelson Phillips from Imperial College (UK) served as the opponent.
Our collaboration with Robin Gustafsson began when Nina Janasik and Robin organized a course on Socio-Cognitive Fundamentals.
