Beatrice D'Ippolito is Senior Lecturer in Strategic Management. Her research focuses on the emergence and development of mechanisms of knowledge creation and diffusion that connect the micro level of firm dynamics with the meso level of industry evolution. She conducted extensive qualitative and archival research in Italian design-intensive firms.
As a Research Fellow at Grenoble Ecole de Management, France, Dr D'Ippolito's interest on firm and industry evolution were narrowed down to explore how inter-firm collaborations may yield innovation and constitute source of growth. She did so in two different empirical contexts, that is, science-based firms and new energy technologies firms.
Since joining The York Management School, Dr D'Ippolito has nurtured further her interest on the innovation dynamics that characterise creative firms; in particular, she is intrigued by how digital technologies are shaping processes of media content production and distribution.
Her research has been published in top-tier academic journals such as Research Policy, Industry and Innovation, and Technovation. Dr D'Ippolito currently supervises two PhD students and has teaching experience at master and bachelor level across different institutions, that is, University of Manchester, Grenoble Ecole de Management, Universita' Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, and University of York.
PhD, University of Manchester, UK (ESRC Fellowship)
MRes, University of Manchester, UK (ESRC Fellowship)
