  • Development of a recycling process for textiles made from PET, and proof
           of its environmental preference with life cycle assessment

      Authors: Lynn Luedemann, Andreas Felber, Marcus Golder
      Pages: 134 - 154
      Abstract: Recycling belongs to the strategies for reducing the emission of carbon dioxide, which is one of the main causes of climate crisis. Instead of being recycled, textiles made of synthetic fibres are still mainly disposed by waste incineration or landfill, this means, that textiles currently have to be made of virgin material. Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) is mainly used for fibres (60%) and for bottles (30%), but there only exist different recycling processes for PET-bottles. Within the frame of a governmentally-founded project, a new recycling procedure for textiles was explored. The goal was to get staple fibres out of the textile waste by simultaneously maintaining their properties. Different technical steps were tested and a robust process chain was elaborated. Secondly the proof of the ecological preferability with the help of life cycle assessment (LCA) was provided. The environmental impact could be reduced up to 60%. Finally, the successful use of environmental product declaration is proven.

  • Fostering the Sustainable Development Goals with technologies underpinned
           by frugal innovation

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Alexander Ebolor, Nivedita Agarwal, Alexander Brem
      Pages: 155 - 174
      Abstract: The race against time to attain the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) intensifies, with inequality, poor living conditions, and biodiversity threats still prevalent. Achieving the SDGs is constrained by limited resources that require frugal solutions that are affordable, easy-to-use, ecologically sustainable, and socially inclusive. The role of infrastructure companies developing technologies with a frugal orientation that focus on the 17 SDGs must be at the core of efforts, because sustainable infrastructure is critical to the SGDs. This paper examines how such company-efforts foster the SDGs through the lens of frugal innovation. An exploratory multiple case study methodology was used with a 3-step and 4-dimensional evaluation approach to determine what technologies are fostering the SDGs, and their frugal characteristics. The results show that alternative resource and energy innovations are at the core of how infrastructure companies are promoting sustainability and fostering the SDGs. Most cases cluster around ecological contributions (mainly climate and energy), with sustainability and cost-effectiveness being the common characteristics. Implications for theory and practice are discussed, as well implications for policy-making.

      Authors: Diana Heinbucher, Julien Bucher
      Pages: 175 - 204
      Abstract: This paper aims to explicate the role of shared mental models in the ideation process of innovation teams by investigating whether and how shared mental models influence the innovativeness of teams. A multi-level analysis was conducted using a case study research design grounded in the theories of team creativity and shared mental models. Surveys, participant observation and group discussions were used to gather data on 53 participants divided into ten teams in an experimental setting. Shared mental models regarding interaction patterns, processing strategies, coordinated responsibilities and the acceptance and coordination of knowledge had a positive impact on task processing, team interaction and outputs.

  • Application and validation of a disruptive potential methodology for
           digital two-sided platforms - the case of marketplace lending in Germany

      Authors: Sabine Pur, Stefan Huesig, Christoph Schmidhammer
      Pages: 205 - 246
      Abstract: In this paper, we apply and validate a state of the art ex-ante approach to analyse potentially disruptive innovations. Our approach enables quantifying the disruptive potential of digital two-sided platforms as a measure in general, separately for each market side, and for different market players. This approach also pays attention to possible firm heterogeneity on each market side. We illustrate our approach by applying it to and evaluating the case of marketplace lending in Germany in 2015 and 2019. Following the first application of the framework in 2015, the market has developed to such an extent that the ex-ante analysis can be evaluated with ex-post figures and facts from 2019. The results indicate that the proposed framework supports predictions of the disruptive potential in the context of digital two-sided platforms surprisingly accurately, so that we encourage further validations in other areas of ex-ante innovation research.

  • The impact of playful interventions for idea generation processes: a case
           study of an automotive producer

      Authors: Jonas Worede Tarekegne, Klaus-Peter Schulz
      Pages: 247 - 269
      Abstract: In this article we consider intervention methods for idea generation workshops in the automotive industry. The growing complexity of innovation, particularly through combining products and services in a sustainable way, requires methodical approaches that facilitate creativity and integrate multiple perspectives. Hands-on modelling, playfulness, and bodily experience are principles that are gaining growing interest beyond artists and designers. However, in the rather traditional innovation environment of the automotive industry the question arises, what intervention methods based on these principles can contribute to innovation? We therefore applied three different methods: drama intervention, tool-kit-based modelling, and gaming, independent of each other in idea generation workshops of an automobile producer. We assessed the quantity and quality of ideas developed with each method, and also the workshop experience of participants in an exploratory study. It turned out that there is no significant difference between the methods, however in comparison to traditional workshops, the output number and quality is higher. Furthermore, participants capitalised from the workshop experience and considered it as inspiration for their daily collaboration.

      Authors: Anja Herrmann-Fankhaenel, Erne Schell
      Pages: 270 - 293
      Abstract: The aim of this research is to investigate the German sharing economy in its offline and online dimensions and the nature of its commercial and idealistic intentions. Using quantitative research, 505 cases were empirically gathered and analysed against the theoretical background of inherent features. In particular, the study investigates technology involvement within the sharing economy and how it varies between the online, offline, and hybrid interactions of users and the indicators of idealistic intentions, such as financial interactions and profit orientation. With the aid of 11 theory-driven variables, data is descriptively illustrated and subsequently evaluated within the scope of a two-step cluster analysis. The German sharing economy demonstrates a seven-cluster solution, with a majority of offline-organised cases. Evidently, idealistic sharing models exist, especially within the offline dimension, yet online and hybrid models also reveal idealistic characteristics, which stand contrary to theoretical assumptions.

  • A quantitative analysis of the fostering factors of responsible innovation
           with a special focus on imagination and women in tech

      Authors: Julia Breßler, Lisa Hegemann
      Pages: 294 - 311
      Abstract: The search of technologies for the future of mankind is increasingly recognised as a powerful force for a sustainable life. This requires an implication of ethical, legal and social issues in the development process. Yet, despite the extensive stream of research on sustainable technology and innovation, we know little about fostering factors of responsible innovation. In this study, we investigate the roles of imagination and female technology workers for the generation of responsible innovation. We also explore the dimensions of responsible innovation. We examined this issue by conceptualising a responsible innovation index, which is applied in a quantitative analysis of two datasets with a scope of more than 650 objects. Our findings highlight that female tech workers especially strengthen the inclusion function of responsible innovation. However, the results also show that the imagination is influenced by socio-cultural circumstances. Our work constitutes a step forward to a more 'realistic' picture of supporting factors of responsible innovation.

      Abstract: How artificial intelligence (AI) technologies can foster innovation is challenging as data scientists must learn to bridge analytical mastery and intuitive decision-making. In recent years, design thinking, a human-centred, problem-solving approach has been used by researchers to address complex social problems. However, a rigorous study of the application of design thinking in the context of digital innovation is absent from current discourse. This study, based on a revelatory case study, explores how design thinking can foster the development of AI-powered innovations, by bridging the divide between human-centric and machine-centric activities. The study extends the concept of design thinking within digital innovation and provides a new lens to consider studies of organisations engaged in AI-powered innovations. By extending the generalisability of design thinking, we provide novel insights about the challenges, benefits, and lessons learned when data scientists adopt design thinking to 'bridge' and 'balance' their analytical and intuitive thinking.

      Authors: Adam Seymour, Klaus-Peter Schulz
      Pages: 335 - 352
      Abstract: The aim of this study was to explore the learning environment for robotic simulation and the potential of makerspace to contribute to professional practice and ongoing professional development for students and educators. Empirically, we base our suggestions on experience of simulation-based training implemented in the Stan Institute of robotic surgery training in the city of Nancy, France. Based on the results obtained from this study, the makerspace approach was identified as a promising solution for students and trainers to overcome challenges in relation to skill acquisition and assessment of student competencies in a multimodal technological environment.

      Abstract: Traditional life-cycle theory typically holds that firms are more innovative in earlier life-cycle stages than in later stages. However, this may not apply to firms in high-tech industries that heavily rely on innovation to build competitive advantages and that are equipped with rich innovation-related knowledge. This paper analyses R&D investment along the life-cycle for high-tech firms, and investigates the boundary conditions of the hypothesised baseline effects by considering the moderating effects of three environmental factors (environmental complexity, environmental dynamism and environmental munificence). Analyses of high-tech manufacturing firms during 1989-2018 reveal that in comparison with firms in other stages, firms in introduction and decline stages make more R&D investment, especially in complex and moderately munificent environments. Besides, environmental dynamism significantly reduces R&D investment motivation in the decline stage but does not influence it in the introduction stage. Our results offer insights into high-tech firms' innovation pattern along their life-cycle.

      Abstract: Until now, technology valuation has been dominated by the income approach, a forward-looking methodology that discounts future cash flow. To account for risk in technology valuation of innovations, a typical net present value (NPV) method is complemented with real option valuation method. Even though real option techniques account for risk changes in practice, such models are subject to criticism for reasons of mathematical complexity. We propose a modified income approach we refer to as 'Innotech' that incorporates innovation characteristics and industry characteristics into the valuation model. Our modified approach for the valuation of innovative technology reduces challenges related to mathematical modelling and dependency on factors such as risk premium, expected cash flows and contributory charge.
