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 concept.

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.
