Hello and Happy New Year to All

I am keen to participate in this year's conference and thought of trying to
organise a panel proposal around the idea of Open Innovation. First, I
wondered whether anybody has already had this idea and, if so, whether you
are open to my joining you. I have two particular interests in this area. The
first is to explore the international dimensions of the concept and the
second is to consider how a broad range of social actors (universities,
government business support bodies and SMEs) may participate and promote the

I would welcome replies from anybody with an interest in Open Innovation. I
know it is quite late to launch a new idea but am happy to help push
something through if no Panels have as yet been put together.
