AUG ’12 – Additional Call for Research

Systematic Literature Review

The previously published call for research has been amended, with extended timeframes and deadlines.   This new call extends time frames and deadlines.  The goal of the call remains the same: to provide insights into the differences between Business Models, Economic Models, and Operational Models and their link to business strategy.

The new deadline for this £3,000 award is 31 Aug. 2012

See our Calls for Research page for more details.

Call for Research

In order to understand clearly what information is already available, NEMODE is holding a competition for two critical pieces of foundational research.

1. The delivery of a ‘systematic literature review‘ of Business Models with the aim of providing insights into the differences between Business Models, Economic Models, and Operational Models and their link to business strategy.

2. The delivery of a ‘case study’ illustrating the impact of digital technology on a sector or sub sector of the economy.

This is a competition for early career researchers to use and build on their research experiences in Business Models and the Digital Economy through a prestigious £3,000 award. This will not only be a great way for individuals to gain further research experience, but also an opportunity to work with an experienced team on an important project exploring New Economic Models in the Digital Economy.

More information can be found here.

Deadline is 13th July 2012, so don’t delay!
