To further advance cutting-edge research aligned with SRITNE’s vision, the Centre invited proposals that seek funding and are aligned with this broad mission of the centre. We welcomed submissions in a broad range of areas, including but not limited to the business and societal value of IT, technology innovation and entrepreneurship, electronic commerce and digital transformations, social networks and big data analytics, global sourcing, and human capital development.
In response to the call, we received a number of proposals from faculty across diverse areas. Subsequently, we offered grants of INR 40 lakhs to the following projects led by ISB faculty:
Expanding Entrepreneurial Finance through Equity Crowdfunding (2017-2018)
Over the past decade, organizations have increasingly embraced diverse distributed and remote work arrangements. However, the implications of these arrangements have been under-investigated since they are not systematic or pervasive - they have typically been limited to a select group of occupations and organizations. All of that seems to be fast changing with the outbreak of COVID-19. Several millions of workers across diverse sectors and organizational types have been asked to self-quarantine and/ or work from home. In this context, it is valuable, necessary even, to understand the impact of such arrangements on workers, organizations, and society.
