Discussion will pick up from a paper Prof Harrington co-authored on beneficial effects of consortia-based partnerships on productivity

About this Event

Productivity East is delighted to announce details of the next seminar in it’s Research & Innovation series. On 26th May at 4pm, Dr Tomás Harrington will present ‘Consortia-based Partnerships and Productivity’.

Discussion will be informed by a paper Dr Harrington co-authored: ‘Spreading Bets or Going ‘All-In’? Navigating Consortia-led Digital Innovation Pathways’. The session will elaborate on research exploring how firms are benefitting from leveraging pre-competitive consortia. With the increase of consortia-led digitalisation initiatives, firms are now being exposed to new and previously untested partners, whose contributions may well lead to industry-first breakthroughs. With consortia partners now seeking to make sense of substantial follow-on investments in digitalisation, Dr Harrington’s research outlines how they might best organise efforts for specific innovation performance outcomes.


This will be the second in our Research & Innovation series. The series launched with a fascinating and insightful seminar on driving performance in manufacturing through innovation from Professor Sam Turner of the High Value Manufacturing Catapult. The series covers key topics, themes and concepts delivered by academic experts and specialist industry leaders. Future seminars will cover topics such as wellbeing and productivity, smart manufacturing and data and analytics.


The Productivity East facility will open early summer 2021. Meanwhile, the event series is being hosted virtually.
