UNIÓN IBEROAMERICANA DE UNIVERSIDADES SECOND RESEARCH COLLABORATION FUND 2019 CALL FOR PROPOSALS APPROVED THE PROJECT: “How Digital transformation and Open Innovation interaction foster the knowledge and cultural flows in the Ibero-American world. A Methodological approach”.
Synopsis of the project:
Digitalization is changing not only everyday life but as well scientific and cultural production and flows, a “digital turn” affecting scientific and cultural collaboration worldwide and in the ibero-american region (IA). The digital transformation represents a new strategy for sharing knowledge between professionals, opening new possibilities for international cooperation.
The main hypothesis of the proposed research is: while in the cultural industries, digitalization transformed the business models, preventing the share of information and making difficult open innovation policies; in the scientific field, digitalization fosters cooperation and open innovation strategies.
The project will offer a methodological approach to map the scientific and the cultural digital transformation in the IA region, to give focus to open innovation policies, like Big Data, Transparency, and Decision-Making processes. This research explores the extent to which the scientific and cultural networks are composed and how they collaborate thanks to the digital transformation.
