Join us in Cambridge for the Future of Open Innovation Practices Day, on February 13th 2019.

This full day of interactive workshops and talks will showcase tangible mechanisms for facilitating stakeholder interaction to ensure science’s impact on society and the markets.

Expect valuable insights from both Academia and Industry, with keynote speeches from Dr John C Taylor, Professor of Innovation at the University of Cambridge and Head of the Institute for Manufacturing (IfM), Dr. Tim Minshall, and RICARDO's Chief Technology and Innovation Officer, Neville Jackson.

The event is the culmination of EC funded project Science2Society, researching the future of interaction between universities, industries and broader society as a whole. Science2Society is one of very few projects that explore the future of innovation ecosystem interaction mechanisms, particularly borrowing best practices from Internet 2.0 and 3.0 platforms and communities.

The consortium is excited to share their key findings and recommendations with attendees, to support the ongoing innovation learning process.

Join the upcoming ISPIM Connects Ottawa: Innovation for Local and Global Impact held by ISPIM in Ottawa, Canada.

ISPIM is running a challenge-based innovation conference we are running in Ottawa in April.

Why challenge-based?
Well, we feel that this way we can better engage people whilst also delivering a conference that will provide the host city with greater impact. Working closely with our local partners in Ottawa, we have selected three critical challenges that are also of global importance: - Scaling Startups - Adopting AI and Analytics - Innovating with Government

We will be discussing what role innovation can play in solving these challenges and have a series of keynote presentations, discussion panels, workshops and site visits all aimed to address these challenges as well as other innovation management hot-topics.

The conference also includes some great networking social events. Headline speakers include Sir Terry Matthews (Wesley Clover International), Roseann O’Reilly Runte (Canada Foundation for Innovation) and John Shannon (National Research Council Canada)

Why attend?
For Academia - get exposed to a much broader range of practices and attitudes - experience a unique combination of academic rigour and practical relevance - meet colleagues from academia and reflect with and learn from great practice leaders from industry - open up new opportunities for research collaborations for Industry - keep up to date with the latest trends in innovation management - make connections, share your failures, get inspiration to innovate - bring ideas back that you can use in practice - discover an exceptional range of knowledge, experience, competences and opportunities to jointly drive innovation management

For Public Sector - get access to innovation management practitioners and academics - work on real challenges that will have an impact after the conference - keep informed of major developments in the field of innovation management - uncover opportunities for mutual learning

November 4 - 5, 2011 - Barcelona (Spain). This international, 2-day, scientific symposium will be focused on the promotion of cardiovascular health through molecular biology, clinical pathophysiology and population research with the intent of reducing the public health burden that cardiovascular disease poses in developed countries, and increasingly in low- and middle-income countries as well.The goals of this program are: 1) fostering a multidisciplinary dialogue among researchers and clinicians coming from academia, industry, and other parties involved in the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease, and 2) disseminating the symposium’s proceedings to a wider public through creating high-quality dissemination materials and press coverage, which will highlight the conference discussions to the global scientific community and the general public. The agenda will feature plenary lectures, poster and short presentations selected from submitted abstracts, panel discussions, a career development workshop, and plenty of networking breaks. As an introduction to this conference, and in an effort to disseminate the content of the program to a wider public, "la Caixa" Welfare Projects, the International Center for Scientific Debate (ICSD), and The New York Academy of Sciences will hold an evening lecture open to the general public followed by and interactive audience discussion. In this open session, to be held at CosmoCaixa Barcelona, Dr. Valentin Fuster, the conference scientific organizer and world-renowned cardiologist at the forefront cardiology practice, cardiovascular health promotion and disease prevention, will engage in an interactive discussion with general audiences about prevention strategies and lifestyle choices to promote cardiovascular health.

12-13th October, 2011, Vienna, Austria. Maximising R&D productivity & minimising risk through efficient management of more-open & competitive collaborations & alliances.
"Open-innovation" is a concept that has been discussed a lot in recent times across many knowledge-intensive high-tech industries, including one as innovation-dependent as the global life sciences industry. The idea of pooling risk, costs and resources, whilst hopefully increasing R&D productivity at the same time through collaborative innovation is attractive in theory, although difficult in practice in an industry when IP protection is paramount. 

Why Attend?
Understand what is meant by "open-innovation" in practice and how this can work in life sciences. 
Hear real-life examples of successful implementation from pharmaceutical companies, academic-led consortia, non-profits and public-private partnerships. 
Appreciate if the benefits outweigh the costs, as well as answers to the questions what? With who? When? Why? How? And how much? 
Determine how best to share information, risks and costs with R&D partners, whilst protecting intellectual property and maximising the benefits of joint synergies.
