Open Innovation workshop: Day One

This morning we kicked off the two-day open innovation workshop (#OI2012) at Imperial College London. The four editors of the special issues were on hand to hear Ben Martin (lead editor of Research Policy) talk about 20 challenges for innovation studies going forward.

We have a very impressive lineup of 22 papers and 8 posters which promise to move the study of open innovation forward. With 60 attendees registered — all interested in open innovation — the two days promise to have a vigorous discussion of the papers and the field going forward.

We are quite pleased with the participation of authors and attendees. The vigorous discussion should help both the individual papers and the overall portfolio of work that we receive in August for the Research Policy special issue.
