Entrepreneurship and Innovation

The Entrepreneurship and Innovation (ENTI) research group members work on several topics around two main research domains:


  • How dyadic relationships as much as the structural effects of social networks influence individual performance, job satisfaction or even company performance.
  • How entrepreneurs develop their networks to increase their credibility and how this aspect is linked to the acquisition of the necessary resources for the realization of their projects.
  • The impact of inter-organizational relationships on the behaviour and performance of companies.
  • Female entrepreneurship
  • Emotional and cognitive micro-foundations of entrepreneurial behaviour
  • Drivers and outcomes of entrepreneurial health and wellness
  • Social and sustainable entrepreneurship
  • The effect of networks of strategic alliances on the international expansion strategies of companies and the creation of value from national and international strategic alliances.



  • How companies encourage the creation and commercialization of innovation.
  • The role of interpersonal networks in the functioning of organizations, in particular innovative companies
  • Team collaboration and how this collaboration can improve research performance and help the diffusion of knowledge
  • Sustainable innovation, collaborative innovation, and innovation policies in triple helix governance in advanced and developing economies
  • New product development and users’ behaviour towards Internet applications.
  • The place of gender in the innovation process.
