Biography

Marina Bos-de Vos is a post-doctoral researcher and lecturer in the Product Innovation Management (PIM) department. She is particularly interested in business model design and roles of creative professionals in larger ecosystems, processes of value co-creation and value capture and professional identity. Marina is intrigued by how designers run successful businesses based on their ambition to do something good for society. Focusing on how actors collectively construct business models and negotiate roles in inter-organizational settings, Marina aims to get a better understanding of socially relevant design processes from a business perspective. She studies how the systems of interrelated actors and divergent values that underlie these processes, evolve over time. Her mission is to further advance knowledge of value co-creation, value capture and business modelling in these complex creative projects, in order to facilitate design students and professionals in uncovering, communicating and incorporating value-related opportunities and tensions in their daily work. Marina’s work is part of the NWO funded research project `Crossover Collaboration for Digital Innovation', which is a collaborative project with the School of Business and Economics at VU University Amsterdam and several industry partners. From 1 December onwards, Marina will continue her work as an assistant professor in the 4TU project ‘Pride and Prejudice’, which aims to tackle chronic disease prevention through real-life monitoring and context-aware interventions.

In 2018, Marina received her doctoral degree cum laude from the TU Delft Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment, as part of the NWO funded research project `futurA  - Future Value Chains of Architectural Services’. Her doctoral research focused on how architects create and capture value in inter-organizational projects and resulted in publications in International Journal of Project Management, Journal of Professions and Organization, and Construction Management and Economics, as well as a practical toolkit. The toolkit has been widely adopted in practice, e.g. in the Business Bootcamp course of the Royal Institute of Dutch Architects and has been developed into a 3-minute animated movie that allows anyone to teach or practice designing for values. Prior to her academic career, Marina worked several years as a practising architect. Marina is highly motivated to use her industry experience and passion for studying creative businesses to establish fruitful connections between research, education and practice. She is actively involved as a reviewer for scientific journals, in a network of creative industry researchers and in the development of professional training programs.
