Lawrence Dooley

Biography

Lawrence Dooley (M. Comm., Ph.D.) is a College Lecturer in Enterprise and Innovation at University College Cork (UCC) since 2004. Prior to joining UCC, he was based at the Centre for Enterprise Management in the University of Dundee, Scotland. He undertook his doctoral thesis entitled 'Systems Innovation Management' at the National University of Ireland, Galway. His core research interests focus on organisational innovation and issues related to inter-enterprise collaboration and value creation. Other related interests include organisational creativity and knowledge exchange. He has published widely over recent years and actively liaises with industry both through applied research projects, consultancy and research master classes.

Research Interests

My research lies within the three interrelated areas.

1) Management of organisational innovation

The focus of this research is on the processes and structures that organisations utilise to achieve innovations and question how effective management can enhance their ability to innovate successfully.  The research examines both the explorative and exploitative phases of the innovation process.

2) University-Industry collaboration

The focus of this research centres on interaction between university and industrial entities as part of the Entrepreneurial University paradigm. Research strives to identifying exemplars of university-industry collaboration at the discovery science stage of the innovation process and examining why and how the stakeholders achieve co-operation and mutual benefit.

3) Knowledge exchange networks

The focus of this research examines the evolution of knowledge networks within regions, the enablers and barriers that impact their development and the degree of interaction and knowledge exchange that occurs between the independent entities. A key aspect of this research questions why specific networks develop and how they can best be sustained.
