Introduction
I am part of a project sponsored by Science Foundation Ireland examining the impact of Star Scientists on small open economies. I am also examining the use of crowdsourcing by public scientific research funding agencies.

Article
Full-text available
Software startup companies develop innovative, software-intensive products within limited time frames and with few resources, searching for sustainable and scalable business models. Software startups are quite distinct from traditional mature software companies, but also from micro-, small-, and medium-sized enterprises, introducing new challenges...

The identification and development of crowdsourcing practices for scientific research funding agencies.
Presentation
Full-text available
Public scientific research funding agencies (SRFAs) are faced with increasing financial and management constraints and in recent times have sought to use alternative solution sourcing mechanisms to instantiate scientific research through call processes. Crowdsourcing presents one such alternative solution. However, a review of existing crowdsourcin...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
In response to challenges posed concerning theory in the crowdsourcing domain e.g. [Zhao and Zhu 2012, Alam and Campbell 2013, Slivkins and Vaughan 2013] several definitions, taxonomies and frameworks have been proposed e.g. [Brabham 2008, Geiger, Seedorf et al. 2011, Hetmank 2013, Saxton, Oh et al. 2013]. Despite efforts to taxonomize the domain,...

A proposed methodological approach (Action Design Research) to designing crowd engagement models for scientific research funding agencies.
Research
Full-text available
This research project forms part of an IRC Project investigating the use of Crowdsourcing (CS) and Crowdfunding (CF) by scientific research funding agencies. This research seeks to build a framework from first principles for developing, selecting and evaluating CS processes.
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Crowdsourcing initiatives benefit from tapping into diversity. A vast plethora of disparate individuals, organizations, frameworks and skillsets can all play a role in sourcing solutions to a challenge. Nevertheless, while crowdsourcing has become a pervasive phenomenon, there is a paucity of research that addresses how the crowdsourcing process is...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
As design science has matured, prescriptive frameworks and best practices have been advanced to assist researchers and lay out the academic standards for the paradigm. We argue that the problem-solving model underlying much of this progress has limited the ability of researchers to produce creative artefacts. To address this, we propose an amended...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Research has shown that crowdsourcing and crowdfunding are accelerators and facilitators of societal, business and institutional change, presenting numerous potential benefits to the triple helix of government, industry and university. Scientific Research Funding Agencies play an important role in the triple helix and play an important role in the...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Crowdsourcing and crowd-funding have dramatically changed the way we innovate and the way we finance projects. In information systems (IS) literature there is a clear distinction between the crowdsourcing / crowd-funding models used in private organisations and in public organisations. The funding and creation of scientific research initiatives bea...
