ER – From Partner UPV to RSA– Month 5-9
Expertise: Social Network Analysis across SME’s, Knowledge networks, Supply Chain Management.
Tasks where involved: T.2.1; T.2.2, T 2.3
ER from partner BU to RSA – 6-9
Expertise: knowledge networking (plus attitudes towards KN in insurance), Supply chain management
Low supplier engagement in SNA analysis: Low. This risk should be mitigated as UPV has established close research links to SME’s that form part of the social Economy, including insurance fulfilment partners, and has elicited positive feedback on potential trials in knowledge networking. Similarly, Brunel has acquired positive responses from UK suppliers to participate in a future trial.
