2nd ISPIM Innovation Symposium – Stimulating Recovery The Role of Innovation Management
Organised by ISPIM and hosted by The Fashion Institute of Technology this symposium will bring together academics, business leaders, consultants and other professionals involved in innovation management.
The symposium format will include facilitated themed sessions for academic and practitioner presentations together with interactive workshops and discussion panels. Additionally, the symposium will provide excellent networking opportunities together with a taste of local New York culture.
Economies around the world are displaying similar symptoms in a global downturn: profits and investment is disappearing, companies are failing and unemployment is rising. These chaotic and uncertain economic circumstances have required companies and governments to define and implement innovative actions to ensure survival and stimulate recovery.
High uncertainty calls for creative and innovative management. Consumers and businesses still have needs, but what are the best ways to address them? How do we develop such creative strategies? What innovative solutions deal with today's problems and still strengthen business and economic innovation in the long run? How should we manage innovation in the current climate? Those companies and governments that can answer these questions will not only survive the economic crisis, but will emerge in a strengthened strategic position as recovery takes root.
Submissions from academics, consultants and managers on innovation-related topics are strongly encouraged and should focus on the following:
Collaboration and open innovation
Commercialising and financing innovation
Entrepreneurship & intrapreneurship
Innovating business models
Innovation and IP
Innovation policy for economic recovery
Integrating innovation practice into education
