We welcome you to what promises to be a most intensive, exciting intellectual experience. We have written extensively on the topic of Open Innovation and have years of experience in external corporate venturing.

The course offers unique insights to two target groups we want to blend during the first day. During the first day we explore the new developments in how large companies tend to engage with innovative start-ups. The first day’s training is targeting managers in large firms as well as start-up managers, but we welcome also PhD student to follow this training, as it is a unique experience to understand how managers actually manage their engagement with start-ups.

The second and third day targeting PhD students interested in open innovating and innovation ecosystems. We have selected some readings and chapters to guide you in preparing for this two-day course. You will get much more out of the course if you make the time to put more into it. Please read the assigned material carefully, and come prepared to share your questions, reflections and criticisms with your colleagues and us.

Furthermore, upon registration participants should submit an abstract (1-2 pages) as well as bring a poster (A2 format) of their current or indented PhD research on open innovation to be discussed with faculty and Ph.D. candidates.

We have also incorporated reasonably long breaks and lunches, so we hope that you’ll have time to get to know each other and us.
