NeuroTechnology Innovation Project
The goal of this project is to understand what makes neurotechnology innovations and ventures successful. This is related to the larger objective to generate insights about organizational innovation within emerging and interdisciplinary fields such as neurotechnology.
We employ comparative case methods to construct rich case histories on a variety of neurotechnology innovations and ventures through interviews from research labs, commercial firms, financiers, and industry publications covering topics such as industry structures, dynamics, challenges, and key players. The project is currently focusing on senior leadership within medical device and diagnostic industries in existing clusters such as Boston and the Bay Area.
Participation involves a 60-90 minute interview with Professor Davis and other members of the neuroinnovation project team. Interviews are conducted in person whenever possible or over the phone. To be respectful of contributors' time and knowledge, researchers may ask to take notes and follow up as appropriate, and will keep important details confidential.
Participants contribute to the development of knowledge about this important topic, and ultimately receive access to the project's findings, such as highlights, best practices, and innovation benchmarks.
