Open Innovation Speaker Series

The processes of industrial innovation are themselves being innovated. The locus of innovation is shifting, from largely being confined to operations within the four walls of the corporation, to a more distributed, open model of innovation. In this more open approach, useful knowledge can be found from a wealth of possible sources. Companies need to re-orient their management processes to make greater use of external knowledge in their own innovation systems. In turn, companies would do well to let their own unused ideas flow to other businesses for them to use. Related topics involve the opportunity to engage with customers in more participatory processes, advancing science through more open, collaborative, and rapid means, and creating markets and pathways for people around the world to connect and innovate.

The Open Innovation Speaker Series is a weekly series (open to the public) intended to provide both academic and managerial perspectives on open innovation and related subjects. Recent/upcoming speakers include Judy Estrin, Joel West, Vivek Wadhwa, and others. The series is organized by Henry Chesbrough and Solomon Darwin of the Program in Open Innovation at UC Berkeley, and is also endorsed by the Management of Technology Program, which supports a multi-disciplinary approach to innovation, management, and technology.
