Resum

High level of diversity among members of innovation networks may hinder the process of innovation. To overcome difficulties, an intermediary - named knowledge broker - becomes of central importance. Few studies have investigated when this intermediary is, both, an innovative agent and carrier of innovations at networks. This study deals with this imbalance by relying on an ongoing exploratory study of a Pan-European innovation network. The results, discussing the origins, functions and processes that knowledge brokers engage in, show that they can improve the performance of innovation networks by helping members to overcome social and cognitive boundaries.
