Abstract [en]

This thesis evaluates the Bridge model, an initiative from the European Union for structuring research in Europe. The model aims to combine expertise from academia and industry to create an effective interaction that stimulates innovation. This expertise will be geographically spread across Europe, which means that Bridge will serve as a network with virtual subunits.

The authors examine the model with two approaches. First, Bridge is analyzed from a theoretical perspective to study its potential as a network with virtual organizations. Further theoretical framework makes an extensive survey of the organization and its components.

Second, Bridge is analyzed by implementing the model in simulation software in order to identify important and sensitive elements of the model. Runs of the simulation display component connections and parameter settings that optimize Bridge's force of innovation.

The report notes that Bridge meets the theoretical requirements for becoming a successful network with virtual organizations. The simulations also show that Bridge should finance their projects without interference from other parties. Given this scenario, the authors identify a number of components that Bridge should emphasize in order to effectively generate innovations.
