The Technology, Innovation, Management and Enterprise centre (TIME) provides its researchers and associated members a platform to explore new multidisciplinary and innovative approaches to topics related to the wider area of digital innovation.
TIME is a new multidisciplinary research centre which develops and disseminates knowledge on a wide array of topics surrounding the areas of digital innovation and industry 4.0. TIME’s research addresses key managerial challenges and practices, and it is aimed at generating a corpus of knowledge which can help both academics and practitioners tackle the organisational, social, environmental, and economic challenges emerging from the rapid development and use of new digital technologies and innovation. It is further divided in the following interconnected themes: ‘digital innovation and analytics’, ‘productivity and regional growth (including Low- and Middle- Income Countries -LMICs)’, ‘entrepreneurship and SME development and growth’, and ‘digital innovation and well-being’. The centre also engages in enterprise activities with small or large organisations, seeking to solve practical problems and improving organisations and people’s lives.
The aims of the centre are:
- To develop and disseminate research expertise and knowledge in the wider area of digital innovation.
- To provide sound advice on policy and practical issues related to digital innovation to business and practitioners as well as to policy makers.
- To foster an environment of interdisciplinary collaboration to attract international partners, drive large funding applications and be seen as a leader in issues surrounding digital innovation and technology adoption.
