Open Innovation Speaker Series: Spring 2011

Today marks the first day of another semester of the Open Innovation Speaker Series at the Center for Open Innovation at UC Berkeley, a combination of a public speaker series and a graduate seminar in innovation.

The academic speakers include internationally known innovation experts, including Frank Piller, Mary Tripsas and Sabine Brunswicker. There will also be an array of industry speakers, including representatives of Clorox, PARC, SAP and Xerox and the former CTO of Cisco.

I look forward to reprising my appearance today at the COI and giving the Berkeley students an overview of open, user and cumulative innovation. My only regret is to not be able to catch up with Henry Chesbrough, who is teaching open innovation to European Ph.D. students Monday and Tuesday. Today’s session will be hosted by co-organizer Solomon Darwin of UC Berkeley.

Except as noted, the sessions are Mondays from 12:30-2:00 p.m. in Sutardja Dai Hall, room 250.
