Fall OI speakers at UC Berkeley

The Program in Open Innovation has replaced the Center for Open Innovation at UC Berkeley. It’s still headed by Henry Chesbrough (with Solomon Darwin holding the reins during his globetrotting) at the same location with the same website, but apparently it’s now bigger and better than ever.

The fall speaker series starts next week. The sessions will be held at the Haas School of Business on Mondays 2-4 p.m. with two speakers per session. As always, visitors are welcome — I know I’ve met some interesting people at these sessions.

With my move to Southern California, this may be the first time I’ve been unable to make it, but I look forward to the YouTube videos. Note: updated with last-minute substitution of October 10 speaker.
