Abstract [en]

The construction sector is often identified as a less innovative than other industries, due to its project-based character and the lack of-term relationships. This impacts how actors interact, learn and innovate over time. Even though projects are innovative arenas for new ideas and solutions, they are scaled up and turned into widespread innovations. This problem is deemed to originate from the disconnection between the temporary project environment and the permanent organisation of firms: project-led learning and solutions are hard to transfer to the wider organisation of the firm and hence, to turn into business-learning. This paper addresses this inherent paradox by focusing on the following research question: how can construction firms capitalize on new ideas and solutions across the local and global company levels and their temporary andpermanent networks in generating innovations?
