This year’s theme is “Open R&D and Open Innovation”. Drafts of the papers are due this year in abstract (May 8) or final (July 6) form, with final manuscripts at the end of 2008, presumably for publication in 2009.
The editors are also planning on partnering with three related conferences:
- EURAM 2008 in Lubljana and Bled, Slovenia (14-17 May);
- R&D Management Conference 2008 in Ottawa, Canada (17-20 June); and
- R&D Management Advanced Workshop 2008 in Linkoping, Sweden (15-16 September)
Personally, I hope to submit an open innovation paper to the DRUID 25th anniversary conference, but its February 29 deadline is coming up quick.
