Farnaz Motamediyan presents "Impacts of project-overload on innovation inside organizations" paper in Italy
It is always a desirable adventure for young researchers to attend to international conferences with a big variety of interests. In addition to proper learning process and wide networking opportunities, another advantage of multi-discipline conferences is the moments of practicing the real thinking out of the box; to meet the interest of many researchers in the field of innovation engineering.
November 14-16 Farnaz Motamediyan from BTH/PDRL attended The International Innovation and Technology Conference, ICTI2012 in Venice, Italy. Farnaz presented her conference paper "Impacts of project-overload on innovation inside organizations: Agent-based modeling", based on her thesis project (Exploring Impacts of Project Overload on Creativity: An Agent-Based Modeling Approach) together with Volvo Construction Equipment, a BTH research partner.
Farnaz presented her latest paper in relationships of organizational problems- namely project overload - on innovation capacity of her case study in construction industry, Volvo CE.
It was a really good opportunity; nice conference, interesting presentations, lovely participants and of course beautiful city. Now I feel more ambitious to expand my research to something that truly matters for both economy and our society. Farnaz said.
Currently, Farnaz is working at BTH in a project together with Volvo CE to explore the project planning impacts onto creativity in the product innovation and development.
