Dr. Wu’s research interest focuses on the synergies among capability development, entrepreneurship, and alliance networks. Firms develop new capabilities to adapt to the rapidly changing internal and external environments. They compete based on the constantly expanded capabilities of their own and, as well, on their ability to leverage the resources and capabilities possessed by their collaborative partners and embedded in the networks in which they are members. This process involves entrepreneurial mindset and actions and, in many cases, contributes to the product and process innovation of the firm. Dr. Wu has studied these topics in the contexts of the Canadian innovation-based industries and the emerging high-tech sectors in China. Extending her research in new directions, she has recently received SSHRC funding for a research project that focuses on international collaboration in the aerospace industry.
