Quotation Oberg, Achim. 2019. Collaboration in Research between Organizational Forms in Germany. Organization Studies Research Colloquium, Friedrich Schiller University, Jena, Deutschland, 15.05.-15.05. Invited Talk




How do organizations in research and development cooperate with each other? In a new project undertaken by the University of Hannover (Anna Kosmützky), University of Luxembourg (Justin W. Powell and Jennifer Dusdal), and University of Mannheim (Achim Oberg), we investigate the role of organizational forms in research collaboration in Germany. Our goal is to deepen the understanding of the variety of roles forms play in the research and development field. To identify these roles, our project reconstructs the field of STEM+ (science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and medicine) in Germany as a network of organizations with ties derived from co-authored research papers in ranked journals. In the project’s current initial phase, a static image of that network for the year 2010 is analyzed from different perspectives. These perspectives provide first insights into the roles of organizational forms: Which universities collaborated with each other? What is the relevance of research associations, such as Max Planck, Helmholtz, Leibniz, and Fraunhofer? How do collaborations differ between disciplines?
