Title

The change in innovation agenda pre and post Covid-19: a systematic literature review

Abstract/Description

The spread of covid-19 led to the disruption in the global value chains which eventually decreased the global trade. Urgent need of medical equipment, virus detecting devices and need for urgent innovation made it important to analyze the shift in the innovation research. The aim of this paper is to study how the research agenda for innovation has changed since the pandemic began. In this paper, articles are systematically identified which are published in top rated research journals. A total of 85 identified articles which are published two years before pandemic and two years after the pandemic. The articles are analyzed on the basis of their themes, research methodology, sector and then pre and post covid-19 patterns are compared. The findings of the study unfold firstly, the research on innovation has increased in post covid-19. Secondly, research articles on healthcare/medical innovation have increased after the pandemic. The article concludes that Covid-19 worked as a catalyst for research articles with the sub-themes of innovation management, open innovation, sustainable innovation, business innovation, and technological innovation. However, there is no significant change in the pattern of research methodology. Quantitative research has been the popular research method in the four years analyzed
