Management of Open Innovation Seminar: Fall 2014

The Management of Open Innovation Seminar features current research of Haas Visiting Scholars, Postdocs and PhD students, who are investigating phenomena related to the management and processes of product, services, and business model innovation. We discuss conceptual as well as empirical (both qualitative and quantitative) work to advance our understanding of how firms innovate. While the seminar focuses particularly on open and collaborative innovation, we welcome all research combining aspects from corporate innovation, entrepreneurship, new product development, and related fields.

The Management of Open Innovation Seminar meets on Mondays from 11:00 am – noon in room C132 Cheit Hall.
