Back to overview

Yosha Wijngaarden (1987) is a PhD candidate at the Erasmus Research Centre for Media, Communication and Culture (ERMeCC).

Under supervision of dr. Erik Hitters and prof.dr. Susanne Janssen, she studies how cultures of innovation develop in co-located creative industries. Her research focuses on the development of, and interrelationships between, companies, markets, networks and the places where they are located (residencies), and the effects of their co-location on both the companies themselves, their competitiveness, innovative capacities, collaborations, and the environment in which the companies are located. This PhD project is part of the NWO funded project Cultures of Innovation in the Creative Industries (CICI).

Yosha studied in Amsterdam and received her Bachelor’s degree in History in 2009 (cum laude), followed by a Master’s degree in Sociology and a Research Master’s degree in History in 2012. In her theses, she focused on urban policies and their successes in influencing an area’s reputation as well as on the Dutch science policy and its effects on (scientific) innovation. Her main research interests include science policy, science and technology studies, innovation, cultural production, urban policy and cultural analysis.

Before joining the Erasmus Research Centre for Media, Communication and Culture, Yosha worked as a policy officer at NWO.
