New Research Methodologies in Innovation: A Shift Toward Experimentation
Keywords:CIJ, CERN, Innovation, Experimentation
As familiar with our informed readership, CIJ supports unconventional, early-stage, thought-provoking experimental research. We aim to foster innovation methodologies, tools, educational approaches, and experiments to push the boundaries of creativity to drive societal innovation. This is the first statement of our novel Manifesto, which embodies a spirit of open, multidisciplinary exploration, embracing unconventional ideas and research that challenges norms to drive innovation and societal progress.
With this issue, we are inaugurating a special section dedicated to methodological papers aimed at inspiring innovation researchers to explore and embrace diverse applied methodologies in their research. Every issue will have a short note from a relevant expert in the field; this will be on Design Science.
