4th Annual Open Innovation Summit

Practical strategies for improving the design and execution of your open innovation program

Open Innovation (OI) is evolving; so are the skill sets and expertise required for these initiatives to succeed.  We are entering the next generation of Open Innovation, with OI champions now in business development, marketing, sales, finance and human resources capacities. The 4th Annual Open Innovation Summit will: 

  • Identify best practices to serve as the foundation for refining OI programs
  • Analyze new OI trends and patterns in order to map out the future of open innovation
  • Illustrate how to achieve and sustain positive ROI
  • Outline the critical steps to developing an OI Social Media Road Map  
  • Deliver real world solutions to real world challenges, directly from your peers

Most importantly, this program is an opportunity to collaborate with fellow innovators to exchange ideas, share war stories, and build synergies.  And if you’re new to field, there is no better way to become a leader in this field than meeting and learning from the trailblazers.  As such, new to 2012, we are introducing enhanced and highly productive networking activities to connect you with collaborators and potential partners.  Whether you have attended in the past or are new to the conference, this is an event not to be missed.

Special Features for 2012:

  • More international than ever before!
  • An Open Innovation Speedmatching activity!
  • A focus on the future of Open Innovation!
  • A unique debate around OI platforms!
  • Global roundtables evaluating new innovation hot spots!
  • A timely workshop on crowdsourcing!
