The associated doctoral workshop will take place from Saturday and Sunday June 8th- 9th, 2019. 

IPDMC has established itself as the leading annual international conference in the domain of innovation management and new product development. Papers presented at the meeting come from multiple disciplines. Closely related fields such as technology management, entrepreneurship, marketing of innovation, creativity, and design are significant parts of the programme.

The conference has become the focus of important networking among innovation and product development management researchers, for PhD students and junior faculty as well as senior faculty. It is the annual event for researchers in the field and serves as the annual meeting of a virtual society with participants enjoying coming back to meet colleagues. The ambiance is known as friendly and supportive.


The 2019 conference will continue to reflect the achievements, challenges and development of the field of Innovation and Product Development Management through academic paper presentations, challenge sessions, industry engagement, academic keynotes and roundtable discussions on key themes. The conference aims to provide all participants with opportunities to hear, think and contribute creatively to the continuing formation of our field.

Like others the 2019 conference does not have a specific title or theme. We intend to facilitate the broad and inclusive nature of the conference and the community of innovation and new product/service development researchers and practitioners. In particular, submissions covering leading edge topics and new trends are welcome.

Throughout its history, IPDMC has accepted papers from a range of disciplines, including organisation studies, marketing, management, technology management, organisational psychology, creativity and design.
