Dr. Eid specializes in museum digital innovation models. His research investigates the conceptualization of innovation and enterprise in the museum context, an area that continues to be under-theorized. Drawing upon theories from business studies, economics and technology literature, his research seeks to contribute towards building a museum perspective of innovation and possible ways to appropriately embed it in museum practice. Dr. Eid is the founder of the Museum Innovation Model (MIM), a framework that helps museums innovate through the use of open innovation strategies, social enterprise business model, and the concept of social innovation.

Dr. Eid has served on a various conference and workshop program committees. He has served on the 2016 and 2017 MCN Conference Planning Committees. He is the Co-Chair of the Cultural Heritage and Social Change Summit and Co-Founder of the Cultural Heritage and Social Change New Orleans Group. Dr. Eid also directs the New Orleans Art Institute for Social Innovation. The institute is supported by a grant from Joan Mitchell Foundation.
