Cross-cutting themes and opportunities for network and collaboration research

ByRobyn Keast, Christopher Koliba, Joris Voets

In this concluding chapter the volume editors summarize and reflect on some of the key overarching themes and considerations to emerge from a comprehensive review of the chapters. These themes relate to questions of qualitative-quantitative and mixed-methods approaches, advances in computational capacity, big data, artificial intelligence and experimentation, stakeholder engagement, ethical and normative considerations, and adaptive and reflective capacity. This chapter considers these themes relative to the future directions of a research program for networks and collaboratives.
