One of the major challenges is to shape a society that can quickly adapt to a dynamic and increasingly globalized and knowledge-driven environment by stimulating and contributing to effective innovations both of a technical and organizational nature.
The area includes the management of innovative work in companies and organizations, as well as in systems of interacting agents (innovation systems), and covers the study and development of products, efficient processes and tools that can be used in innovative work and in commercialization and business models for innovation.The organization of work and workplaces, gender and change processes are important fields in the area.Studies in these areas focus on everything from individuals and small groups to organizations and more complex systems.
Luleå University of Technology is a leading national and internationally recognised centre for effective innovations and sustainable organizations.
