Dr Weifeng Chen

Eastern Gateway 202q


I specialise in technology adoption, business models innovation, digitalisation and social transformation, and statistical modelling. My current research focuses on the impact of disruptive technologies such as Artificial Intelligence and Blockchain Technology on innovation related to new business models and ecosystem co-creation in global value chains. Additionally, I study contemporary problems in international strategic innovation management and international talents management for new products, services and applications.   

I have collaborated on joint research projects (e.g. United Nation, EU, British Council) with various industries, public sector organisations in the UK and internationally. I have also  provided consultancy on business model innovation and optimisation. I have published in high impact journals such as Journal of Business Research, Production Planning and Control, International Review of Administrative Sciences, Technological Forecasting & Social Change, Information Technology for Development and Regional Studies among others. 11 doctoral students have successfully completed their PhD under my direct supervision. 

I completed my PhD on Business Management and Innovation Strategy in 2008 and since then I have been working as an academic at Brunel.
