Collaboration for Innovation


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.

The intense and diverse nature of this summer school will allow participants to acquire knowledge on both the specific topic of collaboration for innovation but also on the process of developing a PhD thesis. By bringing together several top scholars in the field, the summer school will also allow participants to create social ties that will be important for their future careers.
