Corporate Strategy

Professor Castañer's research broadly deals with corporate strategy and development, with special interest in when and how organizations create synergies from their portfolio (whether across activities in the same value chain, businesses, or countries), and how they successfully develop through internal ventures, acquisitions and/or alliances. Relatedly, he is interested in how integration is achieved within and across organizations.

He is also conducting research on creativity and innovation, including in cultural organizations and creative industries.

Some of his past research dealt with territorial competitiveness, and industrial policy.
