The project brings together classicists to study the human factor in successful innovation and develop and test the concept of anchoring: connecting the new to the familiar.
Our researchers are working together on 7 domains led by eminent researchers in the field. We study all important domains of human civilization and have a special domain devoted to discussing issues of theory.
Our junior researchers are working on exciting individual projects to explore the concept of anchoring in all classical disciplines. Projects range from Greek statues in Rome to epic elements in science fiction film, from Cicero’s letters to Hellenistic medicine.
The Anchoring Innovation programme has initiated its own open access book series with Brill, called Euhormos.
Euhormos (εὔορμος) is the Homeric term for a harbour ‘in which the anchoring is good’. Under this auspicious title, we aim to publish a book series striving to afford ‘good anchorage’ to studies contributing to a better understanding of ‘anchoring innovation’ in Greco-Roman antiquity.
We put on tailor-made lectures and workshops for companies and schools to introduce the concept of Anchoring Innovation. Allow our examples from the classical past to shed new light on the present and future of your organization.
For Dutch school teachers in Classics we have developed teaching material to use the concept of Anchoring Innovation in the classroom.
