The thesis “The Foundation of Innovation Health” is put forward and explained in a new PhD dissertation by Charlotte Glassér at the Stockholm School of Economics. The thesis addresses the convergence between several strings of current research in the quest for a better understanding of the co-dependency and co-evolution of the human being and her ability to innovate, organize and provide products and services through competitive firms.
The introduction and development of the concepts “Innovation Health” and “Systems of InnovationHealth” aims at capturing emerging interdisciplinary understanding of early childhood developmental health and human life-spanning developmental conditions, to the extent that they are relevant for economic change, knowledge- and innovationrelated theory and research.
A discussion of global demographic changes, as they relate to Innovation Health is provided. Further, a possible emerging Theory of the Knowing and Innovating Firm is proposed and elaborated based on Stein’s effort in the early 20th century to create a new philosophy of the humanities and a model of the human being. Her ontology of association, community and the human being is introduced in the context of organizational economics and knowledge-based theories. Her philosophy and “emergentis” ontology is applied as the theoretical framework of Innovation Health and the entire research effort.
This conceptualization and investigation is done at The Stockholm School of Economics with help from scholars at Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg & CHESS, Centre of Health Equity Studies, Stockholm.
