The evaluation committee included Prof. Marte Cecilie Wilhelmsen Solheim from University of Stavanger, Prof. Espen Isaksen from Nord University, and Dr. Ferran Giones from ENI at University of Stuttgart. 

The PhD candidate, Maryna Vakulenko, presented her work on “Where there’s a will, there’s a way: The role of innovation capabilities in the development of innovation outputs”, leveraging different datasets on how different types of firms have built innovation capabilities and how this has shaped their innovation journeys.
