Visiting professorship award for Management School academic
Dr Beatrice D'Ippolito wins scholarship for Visiting Research Professor at Politecnico di Bari, Italy
Dr Beatrice D’Ippolito has successfully secured a scholarship to support a visit to Politecnico di Bari in April-June 2017. During her visit, Beatrice will collaborate with two Professors from the Department of Mathematics, Mechanics, and Management. By building on Beatrice's research interest on the effects of digitalisation on firm innovation, the newly formed research team will explore how digital innovation shapes mechanisms of value creation and appropriation within cultural and creative industries. Dr D'Ippolito has already conducted research and published in the areas of service and non-technological innovations, and the research visit will constitute a great opportunity to further broaden her expertise and develop new collaboration opportunities. Whilst a Visiting Professor at the Politecnico, Beatrice will also contribute to the scientific programme of their Doctoral School through three research lectures.
