Management of Open Innovation Seminar

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. The seminar presents 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, it welcomes all research combining aspects from corporate innovation, entrepreneurship, new product development, and related fields.

The seminar will meet from 11am to 12:30pm in C250 at the Haas School of Business every Monday. All those interested in Open Innovation are welcome to attend.
