Industry Sessions

7th Annual World Open Innovation Conference


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.

The Industry Sessions supplements our Call for Papers to academics, to foster a collaborative environment between the academic and practitioner community. Tap into the collective mind of the conference participants – how does a firm manage open innovation?

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.
