Project lead: Dr. Iryna Heiets, School of Engineering
This project is a multi-disciplinary research based on collaboration between the School of Engineering (Aerospace Engineering and Aviation team), Global Business Innovation ECP at RMIT University, University of Montpellier (France) and industry participation.
The purpose of this project is to provide insights into co-opetition strategies for the airline industry. It investigates how best to co-create and co-innovate in the industry, from both theoretical and practical perspectives. Researcher engagement will be provided through collaboration in co-opetition and innovation between researchers from European and Australian Universities. The practical component involves industry engagement events with professionals from airlines.
The first workshop was held on 17 Sept 2019 and was a great success. The aim of the workshop was to bring a new understanding of the perspectives of coopetition for airlines. It united scholars with different background and experienced practitioners.
A second workshop “Coopetition strategy for airlines” is being planned to be held later this year as part of the A Better Work Start initiative led by Prof. Anne-Laure Mention and Prof. Ivan Cole. The aim of the project is to continue to create the opportunity for collaboration, develop multi-disciplinary capabilities, gather together the competencies and skills to engage in the collaborative innovation process in the area of coopetition strategy.
Stay tuned for more details to be announced soon.
