Agnieszka Radziwon is an Associate Professor of Innovation Management at Aarhus University in Denmark and a Fulbright Visiting Research Fellow at the Garwood Center for Corporate Innovation at the Haas School of Business, University of California, Berkeley in the United States.

Professor Radziwon’s expertise is in innovation and technology management. As a scholar, she is looking into a broader perspective of inter-organizational collaboration in various types of (eco)systems. She is interested in the ways knowledge is transferred across organizations, the role of networks in facilitating or hindering innovation, and how institutions codify ideas and practices.

She has published several highly cited articles concerning open innovation, open innovation in science, and ecosystems. She is a co-editor of the Oxford Handbook of Open Innovation, Oxford University Press, 2024.
