Academy of Innovation, Entrepreneurship, and Knowledge membership expresses a researcher’s continuous focus on innovation and knowledge processes. Academy members embrace the wisdom of Academy Fellow Gerd Gigerenzer, who argues that “Scientists’ tools are not neutral.” Tools-in-use indicate the relevance of alternative theories and the researcher’s focus as to how to answer research questions. Academy members recognize the need to contribute with useful theory on why superior innovations are often initially rejected by users who would benefit the most from their adoption. Academy members understand that innovation and knowledge research is a tricky business because people in organizations/firms often say more or less than they consciously or unconsciously know.
Academy of Innovation, Entrepreneurship, and Knowledge is the one global organization that welcomes scholars seeking to acquire a deep understanding of innovation and knowledge theory and practice.
