Venue: Room 4.23, Newcastle University Business School

Speaker: Marianne Sensier

The green goods sector has received much attention for its potential to re-generate the economy in addition to its energy and environmental benefits. To understand what is behind the innovation dynamics of the green sector, this seminar looks at a panel of UK small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) involved in manufacturing green goods, over 2003-2012.

During this seminar Marianne Sensier uses an explicit definition of green goods that is keyword based (see Shapira, et al 2014), building on prior definitions while going beyond traditional government industry classifications and patent-oriented definitions. Combining structured and un-structured data from firm's web-sites and finding a role for research and development activities, grant funding and openness for UK firms.
