The contribution of skilled workers and apprentices in innovation processes

Within research on innovation, there has been little research on the contribution of skilled workers and apprentices in innovation processes.

In this project, we analyse the role of skilled workers and apprentices through longitudinal case studies of selected companies. We will examine the interaction between skilled workers and employees with higher education, as well as the interaction between skilled workers and apprentices.

We also analyse the role of employer/labour organisation and collective bipartite cooperation between employers and unions.
