The Development of scientific networks and multinational research projects: who plays the key role?

Author: De Meyer, Arnoud ; Saab, W ; Tabet, JINSEAD Area: Technology and Operations Management Series: Working Paper ; 94/12/TM Publisher: Fontainebleau : INSEAD, 1994.Language: EnglishDescription: 24 p.Type of document: INSEAD Working Paper Online Access: Click here Abstract: The aim of the research presented here is to understand more clearly the factors that encourage international projects to take place, and influence the creation or extension of European scientific networks in particular. We have also analysed the communication process among scientists, which reveals the existence of scientific networks. It appears that some researchers play a key role either in exchanging information inside and outside their research organization, or in communicating with other researchers. We have attempted to identify these people, to determine their differentiating characteristics, and to confirm their role in the constitution of international projects. Our contribution has been to analyse the role of these communicators in an important and specific environment: the European multinational communities of scientists. Finally, some managerial implications concerning the process of information search and the building of European scientific networks were drawn from these results
