Berlin, Feb 22, 2017
Invited by Arnold Windeler, Institute of Sociology at TU Berlin, the FU-based Research Unit “Organized Creativity” met with the Research Training Group “Innovation Society Today” led by him together with Ingo Schulze-Schaeffer from the same institute. After short presentations of the research agenda of the Research Unit by Jörg Sydow, Spokesperson of the Unit, and one selected project by Gregory Jackson, also from the School of Business & Economics at FU Berlin, we debated several issues. In particular, we focused on the notion of creativity and its relationship with innovation, and on suitable methods to study creative processes in and among organizations. After the presentation of the research agenda of the Research Training Group by Arnold Windeler, commonalities and differences between these two formats of research sponsorship by the German Research Foundation became clear. With regard to conceptual issues, we discussed the notion of innovation fields, which is central for the second phase of research at the TU-based Research Training Group. At the end of the workshop, we agreed upon joint activities, including joint method training, the coordination of a lecture series and blogging activities, like this one.
