CeFEO Ownership Workshop

In order to strengthen our attention and commitment toward the exploration of one of the JIBS focus areas, ownership, CeFEO decided to introduce a thematic workshop in 2018 dedicated to deepening and broadening our understanding of ownership. The workshop is offered to JIBS faculty and open to the national and international community.

The purpose is to engage in a debate that stimulates a common interest that could in turn lead to the initiation of new research projects and funding applications.

1st CeFEO Ownership Workshop

The first edition of the workshop, dedicated to “Emergent Concepts of Ownership Across Firms and Industries”, was held at JIBS in November 2018. The format of the workshop involves the participation of visiting scholars as well as researchers from JIBS.

With this workshop, we explored the focus area of ‘ownership’ by studying how industrial and geographical changes (e.g. digitalization, innovation, internationalisation, intellectual property, knowledge boundaries/integration) affect the theoretical and empirical foundations of ownership.

Topics discussed in the workshop included:

  • Anna Grandori: Ownership and governance, theory of the firm, contracts, ownership and human capital, ownership, and the law
  • Fredrik Tell: Innovation, knowledge integration, digitalization, patents, and protection.
  • Leif Melinexternal link, opens in new window: Ownership and forms of organization, types of ownership, property and decision rights, psychological ownership
  • Rolf Lundin: Projects and temporary organizations; network projects and its ownership and time characteristics.
  • Jerker Moodyssonexternal link, opens in new window. Knowledge bases for innovation; institutional characteristics and vested interest in knowledge creation; regime status-quo, and the role of middle-size firms in knowledge creation.
