This theoretical contribution discusses the role of networks for innovation in project-based organizations. Network serve as loci for innovation in providing timely access to knowledge and resources that are otherwise unavailable and stimulating internal expertise and learning capabilities‚ especially in industries in which complex knowledge bases expand rapidly. Moreover, networks may serve as the alternative access to resources that are not readily available through market exchanges. The aim of this contribution is to address some of the critical issues related to a better understanding of how diverse network structures impact on innovation. The authors build upon social network arguments, drawing on the idea that “optimal” network structure should be understood according to the context in which the network is embedded, the nature of the actors and the content of the relationships.
