Personal background

Elif is a Research Associate at the Centre for Business Research (CBR), University of Cambridge. Until December 2013 she was a UK~IRC Research Fellow at the CBR. Her research was concerned with innovation and performance in knowledge-intensive business services, and contributes to the understanding of the linkages between different sectors and sector specific policy design. Her research interests relate to three inter-related areas. One strand focuses on how firms develop their innovation strategies and methods in order to maintain or increase their competitiveness, focusing particularly on service innovation, servitisation and open innovation strategies. The second relates to internal and external sources of innovation capabilities in small and medium-sized enterprises, especially in emerging countries. She is also interested in intellectual property rights and the analysis of patents and design rights.
