  • 2. Impact of digital • Transformative for social science „as Galileo’s telescope was for the physical sciences‟ (Baker, 2009) • Allows practitioners to „feel the heartbeat of today’s society‟ (Casteleyn, Mottart et al., 2009, p. 439) Quinton and Canhoto (2014) 2
  • 3. Research question „What are the research priorities of academics and practitioners working in the digital arena?‟ Quinton and Canhoto (2014) 3
  • 4. A collaborative approach • Growing gap between marketing practitioners and academics (Hughes et al., 2008; Tapp, 2004) • Increasing pressure for universities and industry to collaborate • Government funding (Berman, 2008) • Commercial organisations may have better data, technology or techniques Quinton and Canhoto (2014) 4
  • 5. Bridging, not closing, the gap • Very different goals, capabilities and epistemological stances (Bansal, et al., 2012) • Exploratory study with practitioners and academics • Group discussions to stimulate new ideas and concepts for further research (Finch and Lewis, 2003) Quinton and Canhoto (2014) 5
