This Fellowship investigates the opportunities and challenges to dependable innovation in the context of the extended network organisation and global technology design and production.


Today, more than ever, it is no longer sufficient for products and technologies to be innovative, they also have to be dependable (i.e. reliable, available, safe and secure). Technology validation, including virtual and physical testing, is the principal means by which dependability can be achieved; yet, despite its importance, testing remains a neglected feature of the innovation process.


What are the challenges to verifying the properties of products (processes and services) whose design, production and maintenance are distributed across extended organisational networks?
