Abstract

This paper describes a research project that studies the development of manufacturing technology for semiconductors. It examines to what extent, under which conditions, and in which ways interorganizational network can actually enable the creation of a new technological path in this field. It gives a summary overview of the theory of path dependence, which has very recently been complemented by the concept of path creation. It introduces the empirical field of study and presents the specific research questions, research design and methodology.

Keywords: Network, Technological Path, Creation, Lithography, Innovation
