9th International Open and User Innovation Workshop
July 4-6, 2011, WU - Vienna University of Economics and Business
The Annual International Open and User Innovation Workshop is the leading academic seminar on Open and User Innovation. It has been initiated and is co-chaired by Eric von Hippel from MIT. Around 200 researchers from various disciplines (like entrepreneurship, innovation management, strategic management, organization design, marketing, intellectual property right management, and public policy) meet annually, in order to exchange recent research ideas and findings in Open and User Innovation.
State-of-the-art research findings and methods will be discussed in research fields like lead user innovation, user entrepreneurship, mass customization, crowdsourcing, producer-user-co-creation, collaborative innovation, policy towards open and user innovation as well as open business models.
The Institute for Entrepreneurship and Innovation (Profs. Nikolaus Franke and Christopher Lettl) at the Vienna University of Economics and Business (WU Vienna) is hosting this annual event for the second time.
The workshop used to be by invitation only. But as this is a bit contradictionary to the theme of "open innovation", now there is a broad call for papers and abstracts! Submission deadline is April 17.
