Research Interests

Dagmara’s research explores individual, organisational, legislative and regulatory aspects that affect the emergence of science-based innovation. She is interested in why and how scientists share knowledge, particularly with non-academic innovators; how research commercialisation practices at universities, including intellectual property and knowledge management practices, evolve over time to stimulate innovation; and how legislative and regulatory frameworks affect knowledge creation and knowledge sharing between universities and industry.
