The paper What About Design Newness? Investigating the Relevance of a Neglected Dimension of Product Innovativeness has won the Jürgen Hauschildt Best Paper Award 2010 granted by the German Academic Association for Business Research (VHB).
FEB researcher Jaap Wieringa co-authored this paper with Katrin Talke (University of Hamburg) Søren Salomo (Danish Technical University in Copenhagen), and Antje Lutz. The same paper was awarded in October 2010 with the Thomas P. Hustad Award for the best paper published in Journal of Product Innovation Management in 2009.
The award was presented at the annual meeting of the Kommission Technologie, Innovation und Entrepreneurship im Verband der Hochschullehrer für Betriebswirtschaft which was held early November in Kiel, Germany. With this prize, which was awarded for the first time, the committee aims to stimulate empirical research in the field of innovation management.
