This online event, taking place on 20 November 2020 serves as a platform for early career researchers in the area of innovation management to advance their research, exchange ideas and connect with other experienced and emerging innovation scholars.
The workshop seeks to bring together scholars who explore issues pertaining to managing innovation across various boundaries. For example, we encourage proposals that seek to better understand innovation within and between organizations; innovation across geographical boundaries; or how specific forms of knowledge boundaries influence innovation (e.g. innovation in clusters, ecosystems, networks, generating knowledge across human-AI relationships). We are also interested to receive proposals that explore how different disciplines and sectors (e.g. universities, R&D institutes, industry, government and NGOs) are coming together to find rapid innovative solutions to bolster our fight against COVID-19. Finally, we encourage studies that expand the frontiers of innovation research by proposing new theoretical insights, applying novel methodological techniques and bridging multi-level and multi-actor perspectives.
Our workshop is specifically tailored to early career scholars (i.e. advanced PhD students, post-docs, and junior faculty) who would like to develop their research ideas in a collaborative and collegial setting. The workshop is designed in a virtual round-table set-up, where attendees have the opportunity to discuss their research with peers under the guidance of experienced senior scholars engaging in innovation research globally. Senior scholars will provide you with developmental feedback on your work. We will also arrange panel discussions relating to ongoing developments in innovation research as well as current challenges of conducting innovation research under COVID-19.
