AuthorsD'Este Cukierman, Pablo ; Llopis Córcoles, Óscar
Issue Date2014
CitationEU-SPRI Conference 2014
AbstractThis article investigates how actors' position in a network influence their capacity to come up with new medical innovations. Our focus is on the relationships between biomedical scientists working in different institutions such as hospitals, universities and public research centers. We use survey data to analyze the different brokerage roles that biomedical scientists can play, as well as the distinctive effects that such positions exerts over the scientists' likelihood to participate in different medical innovation outputs. Our results shows that scientists that mediate between actors from different medical communities are more prone to innovate.
