As we are delving into an era of exponential technologies, meeting the demands for agile, ‘fail-fast’ innovation systems and rapid commercialisation of products and services are integral to the survival of today`s organisations. Constant strategy re-thinking and hacking of one’s own innovation model is the new imperative. With that in mind, companies can no longer afford to think about innovation in singular terms. Open Innovation (OI) researchers and strategists, as well as inventors themselves, will be coming together this autumn in Berlin to lay down a holistic overview of the best practices and trends within this discipline. Join us in Berlin for two days of practical workshops and inspiring case studies discoursing the future of innovation!
