CFP: OI in Bath

This summer I’m making two trips to England to speak about open innovation. The first is for next week’s Open and User Innovation Workshop being hosted at the University of Brighton.

The second will be for a two-day workshop (Sept 19-20) at the University of Bath, entitled “Strategizing open innovation: foundations for new approaches”. The session is being hosted by Felicia Fai and Anthony Roath of the School of Management, and features four guest speakers:
  • Joel West, Keck Graduate Institute of Applied Life Sciences, Claremont, California, USA
  • Richard Whittington, Saïd Business School, University of Oxford, UK
  • Teppo Felin, Saïd Business School, University of Oxford, UK
  • Letizia Mortara, Institute for Manufacturing, University of Cambridge, UK
Not listed is Bath’s newest faculty member, widely cited OI scholar Ammon Salter, who joins the school this fall.

Although the keynote speakers have been selected, the organizers are waiting for submissions to determine the rest of the program:
We invite submissions that relate to the adoption of open innovation (OI) practices and their implications for strategic development. This may include (non-exclusively or non-exhaustively): adjustments in managerial mindsets, the creation of new resources, the development of new or adjustment of existing capabilities, the creation of new business models, structures and strategies for OI.

To signal your interest, please send a summary of your idea and how it contributes to the workshop theme in no more than 500 words. A maximum of 30 submissions will be selected for discussion at the workshop.
Submissions are due July 28 (US time). See the call for proposals for more details.
