OUI2020+1 Conference Mode
After careful consideration of the pandemic situation, we made the decision to hold the OUI2020+1 as a virtual-only event and not offer a physical conference option this summer.
- Main conference sessions (paper presentations and keynotes) will therefore be held virtually on June 21 and 22 in the afternoon hours of CET (between 2-7pm CET, i.e. 8am – 1pm EST) via interactive Zoom sessions.
- We will work hard to make OUI2020+1 a truly interactive experience — no streaming of recorded talks, for example! Focus is on interaction, discussion, exchange, and learning. After the official program, we will provide various networking opportunities for participants.
About the OUI Conference
Organized by the Open & User Innovation Society since 2002, the Open and User Innovation Conference (OUI) brings together about 200 to 300 researchers from around the world to exchange recent research findings and plans related to new developments in open and user innovation.
The community of scholars meeting at OUI is characterized by a very open, developmental academic culture sharing plenty of feedback and ideas. The OUI is truly multidisciplinary, covering disciplines such as innovation management, strategic management, organization design, marketing, intellectual property rights, entrepreneurship, and public policy, but also health care, psychology, and industrial engineering and design.
