We invite you to participate in the World Open Innovation Conference by submitting a challenge on managing open innovation in your organization. We will evaluate each challenge based on the applicant’s ability to articulate an important open innovation challenge that other organizations are also likely to experience; with a more specific description of challenges preferred over more vague descriptions. We invite submissions of challenges of managing open innovation in a corporate, public agency, or non-profit setting.

This Call for Challenges supplements our Call for Papers to academics, to foster a collaborative environment between the academic and practitioner community. We offer conference participants the opportunity to tap into the collective mind of the conference participants and challenge them with a task you are facing when managing open innovation in your context. We will take careful notes of the discussion to assist you in understanding the feedback offered at the conference. All discussions will be conducted under Chatham House Rules.
