  • Where Do Green Inventors Come From?


     View Summary

    The purpose of this research is to elucidate the individual and social factors that shape green innovation within the automotive industry. While previous studies have focused on strategic initiatives of top decision-makers or the effects of institutional environments on green innovations, less attention has been paid to the inventors themselves. This study aims to investigate the characteristics of inventors who are more prone to innovate in green technologies and the social contexts that are conducive to green innovation.  By examining the interplay of these factors using patent data and social network analysis, the research seeks to draw implications on how managers can design effective environments for inventors to stay innovative amidst growing pressures for environmental responsibility. The result of the research was submitted to an academic journal.
