Collaboration for Innovation

duration 1 week
fee EUR 500

Collaborative innovation has deserved ample attention from scholars, managers, and policy makers. The increased complexity of knowledge processes lead firms to search beyond their own boundaries for valuable knowledge and skills that complement their own capabilities. Firms are now part of open innovation ecosystems where they cooperate with other firms, civil society, academia and governmental institutions.
The core aim of the Groningen Collaboration for Innovation Summer School is to contribute to build a broader and more inclusive community on the topic of collaborative innovation. In order to do so, our ambition is to bring together PhD students studying this topic and provide them the opportunity to develop their research and to grow their network.
