December 10, 2020 - December 11, 2020
The Garwood Center for Corporate Innovation, University of California, Berkeley is pleased to announce the 7th Annual World Open Innovation Conference (WOIC 2020).
Due to the continuing safety concerns and public health restrictions with respect to large gatherings during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Garwood Center for Corporate Innovation, along with the support of the World Open Innovation Conference organizers, have made the decision to transform WOIC 2020 into a virtual conference.
Our conference theme this year is “Leading the Recovery: Turning Threats into Opportunities with Open Innovation”. The pandemic is making a profound impact on economic and social life throughout much of the world. How should innovation innovators adapt to the so-called “new normal” and lead their organizations towards recovery? In this year´s edition of the World Open Innovation Conference, we will focus on the knowledge and tools from open innovation that help innovators overcome threats and identify new opportunities for growth and prosperity. The WOIC brings together leading academic researchers in open innovation from around the world, and pairs them with some of the most advanced practitioners of open innovation in the world. So this is a great place to engage, confront, brainstorm and resolve some truly important business and social concerns.
