Julie Fabbri is an Assistant Professor in Innovation Management at EMLYON Business School and a Research Fellow at the Management Research Center (i3-CRG) of Ecole polytechnique. She is interested in the synergies between space and organization in the context of innovation. Her research activities focused on the intersection between the recent spatial turn in the management and organization theory literature and the empirical phenomenon of the rise of new inter-company & collaborative spaces (e.g. makerspace, fab lab, hacker space…). She has completed a doctoral degree (2015) on intra- and inter-organizational dynamics within coworking spaces for innovative entrepreneurs. Her main research projects deal with the materiality of organizations, open innovation management, and collective learning dynamics.
Since 2015, prior to joining EMLYON Business School, she was General Secretary of the i7 Institute for Innovation & Competitiveness at ESCP Europe Business School (2011-2014), and then Research Fellow at the Innovation Management Chair of Ecole polytechnique (i3-CRG) (2015-2016). She is also one of the co-founders of the international research network RGCS (Research Group on Collaborative Spaces – Paris, London, Montreal, Barcelona), dealing with work and workplace transformations in the context of the sharing economy.
