New Frontiers in Open Innovation

IP Finance's friends at Oxfirst are running a free webinar on Monday 3 November 2014 at 16.00 pm GMT, under the title "New Frontiers in Open Innovation" [which coincidentally happens to be the name of a new book ...].  The star performers are (i) Henry Chesbrough (organizational theorist, academic and the man who coined the term "open innovation"), (ii) Wim Vanhaverbeke (fellow academic co-founder with Henry Chesbrough of the European Innovation Forum) and (iii) Joel West, who co-edited Open Innovation: Researching a New Paradigm as well as this new book with the first and second named participants.

So what's this event about?  Oxfirst explain:
"Companies have to innovate to stay competitive, and they have to collaborate with other organizations to innovate effectively. Although the benefits of "open innovation" have been described in detail before, mechanisms underlying how companies can be successful "open innovators" have not be understood well. A growing community of innovation management researchers started to develop different frameworks to understand open innovation in a more systematic way.  In the spirit of an open approach to innovation, the editors have engaged other scholars and practitioners (Oxfirst included) to contribute some of their interesting insights in this book".
