EJIM Special Issue on Open Innovation
Special issue call for papers from European Journal of Innovation Management
According to Henry Chesbrough “Open Innovation is the use of purposive inflows and outflows of knowledge to accelerate internal innovation, and expand the markets for external use of innovation”. Several heterogeneous phenomena are compatible with such a broad definition and have all been labelled Open Innovation: Intellectual Property markets with or without the presence of intermediaries, crowdsourcing and lead user innovation, academic and company spin-offs, and collaborative research projects. The external sourcing and the external commercialization of innovation are very different practices as well.
To what extent these phenomena can be studied as one?
