The newPIC Chair of the Paris School of Business is organising a workshop, on 27 March 2023, presenting its recently published book by Routledge on Open Labs and Innovation Management.
The newPIC (new Practices for Innovation and Creativity) Chair was founded in 2014 to study the micro-foundations of innovation and creativity, from the emergence of new ideas to their appropriation, covering all value creation processes. The newPIC chair analyses new models of innovation such as collaborative open labs, coworking spaces and makerspaces.
This workshop will examine the operating modes of open labs (living labs, fab labs, coworking spaces, "third places", etc.) and the returns on experience on the managerial practices that these places implement to initiate new modes of multi-partner collaboration, intensify co-creation, support start-ups in their exploratory processes and accelerate their projects.
The event is organised in partnership with the MOSAIC research group of HEC Montréal and under the patronage of the EURAM Strategic Interest Group on Innovation (European Academy of Management - SIG ).
Two distinguished keynote speakers will share their recent research findings on the contribution of open labs to innovation management :
Kathrin Moeslein, Vice-President of FAU Nurnberg Erlangen and former President of EURAM,
Giovanni Schiuma, Professor at LUM University, Italy and Director of the Innovation Insights Hub, University of the Arts London
During this workshop the authors of seven chapters of the book will also give presentations on their contributions:
- Professor, Patrick Cohendet HEC Montreal - Co-director, Mosaic HEC Montreal
- Professor, Laurent Simon, Director of the Department of Entrepreneurship and Innovation - Co-director, Mosaic HEC Montreal
- Luc Sirois, Director General, Quebec Innovation Council
- Nicolas Aubouin, Ignasi Capdevila, Alexandra Le Chafottec, Valérie Mérindol and David W. Versailles, from PSB new PIC Chair
The workshop is particularly relevant for academics and researchers in the fields of innovation studies and management sciences. It also provides important guidance for teaching, policy making and professional practice.
