We proudly announce our call for papers for the 6th Annual World Open Innovation Conference (WOIC). Open innovation describes “a distributed innovation process based on purposively managed knowledge flows across organizational boundaries” (Chesbrough & Bogers, 2014: 17). It provides insights into how firms can harness inflows and outflows of knowledge to improve their innovation success (Chesbrough, 2003; Bagherzadeh et al., 2019; Enkel et al., 2009; Laursen & Salter, 2006; Zobel, 2017). It has become a popular area of innovation research, as shown by several reviews (Antons et al., 2016; Dahlander & Gann, 2010; Huizingh, 2011; West & Bogers, 2014; Randhawa et al., 2016).
This year´s conference theme concerns attainment of the important socio-economic developments goals, i.e. United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are now widely adopted by researchers, practitioners and policy makers. This year, we have a specific interest to help identify and develop the best new theoretical and applied research in open innovation that can also address the globally emerging grand challenges (George et al., 2016).
The open innovation questions, related to the societal and business challenge theme and beyond, can be answered at and across different levels of analysis (e.g., Bogers et al., 2017) — ranging from individuals (Bogers et al., 2018b), to projects (Du et al., 2014), to business models (Saebi & Foss, 2015), to ecosystems (Holgersson et al., 2018), to public sector organizations (Hilgers & Ihl, 2010). At the same time, there are many opportunities to link open innovation to other domains, such as sustainability (Arcese et al., 2015), servitization (Visnjic et al., 2016), co-creation (Markovic & Bagherzadeh, 2018), additive manufacturing (Ford et al., 2016), blockchain (Iansiti & Lakhani, 2017), artificial intelligence (Ransbotham et al., 2017), design thinking (Beckman & Barry, 2007), small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) (Vanhaverbeke et al., 2018), and so on.
