On 28 and 29 June 2019, CFIA director Prof. dr. Peter Knorringa will give a paper presentation at SASE 2019 in New York. The paper, written jointly by Peter Knorringa and Greetje Schouten, is titled "What can the GVC & standards community learn from Frugal Innovation research?"
The paper is presented to Network O: Global Value Chains. The paper identifies similarities between the fields of GVC, standards and frugal innovation, by characterizing the literature within each field. It discusses connecting the fields through collaboration: is there potential for constructive collaboration, why has it not occurred so far, and how would such collaboration be beneficial? Could a frugal innovation angle provide new insights and elements to global value chain and standards research? And should a common research agenda be drafted, to contribute to more sustainable and inclusive value chain relationships?
These questions will be answered by Peter Knorringa during the SASE Conference paper presentation.
