Experience Visual Collaboration techniques while helping to resolve a key area of friction for teams who work across boundaries (internal or external). Decision making is critical to ensuring that good innovation moves forward to market effectively, but it is often overlooked and causes projects to stall or fail, especially in teams which span cultural, functional or organisational boundaries. In this workshop, we introduce you to Visual Collaboration, and use it to establish the key principles of good decision making that you can apply to any project or team

As a patent attorney, one of the most difficult questions I have been asked is… “Is such a thing as a perfect patent and, if so, what does it look like and how does my business get one?” During this seminar I will explain how a patent’s value is often hidden and that no two patents are ever the same. The talk will set out a number of important rules to help every business develop an IP portfolio that not only provides the required level of protection but which also adds value.

This panel symposium aims to advance our understanding of how organizations can use social media in innovation management through a moderated, interactive discussion. International experts in social media and innovation will particularly discuss emerging and future trends, opportunities and challenges for using social media in innovation management from a practical, conceptual and methodological perspective. Confirmed panellists are Professor Frank Piller (RWTH Aachen, Germany), Professor Dominik Mahr (Maastricht University, Netherlands), Professor Johann Füller (University of Innsbruck and Hyve AG, Austria) and Mr. Sandro Kaulartz (Ipsos Group S.A., France).

Over the last decades many efforts have tried to reduce the distance between science and society seeking to bring issues related to research and innovation into the open, to anticipate their consequences, and to involve society. Until now, bibliometrics has proposed indicators and methods for measuring research performance that are largely inappropriate to effectively tackle economic, social and environmental challenges. With a sector increasingly full of pressure and expectation, we recognize the challenges faced by colleagues in connecting research to impact. In this vein, the main aim of this workshop is to introduce the most innovative participatory methodologies researchers could adopt in all stages of R&I processes and in all levels of R&I governance to improve the real impact factor of their research.

By walking through the menu functions of the implemented package CoDaPack, this one-hour workshop explains Compositional Data Analysis (CoDa) and its potential applications with quantitative research datasets. Included are the concepts of the simplex compared to the real number space, the hypothesis underlying statistical data analysis (sample space, scale), the Aitchison geometry of the simplex, coordinate representation and distributions on the simplex. A brief overview will also be provided of a normal distribution on the simplex, exploratory analysis, irregular data, using the R language with CoDa regression, cluster, MANOVA and discriminant analysis.
Participants should pre-install CoDa pack from the University of Girona (UdG) here. After the Coda Primer, as part of the Q&A, participants will be able to briefly discuss any of their research datasets that may be applicable with the CoDa method.

Collaboration between Universities and industry can be challenging enough, but adding a cross cultural dimension, accentuated by significant geography (and time) difference, plus a virtual world of zoom would probably add sufficient barriers to make it impossible. The collaboration set up over the last year between Japan’s Rakuten Mobile and the University of Strathclyde proves that it isn’t. The partners were unknown to each other a little over a year ago, but a technology challenge is now growing in to multiple areas of engagement.

What do we know about innovation management and what do we know about teaching innovation management? Opportunity to take stock of what topics feature in teaching and what topics are emerging from research and the needs of industry in order to inform curricula. How do we appropriately assess student learning in the field of innovation management and should this be developed to improve authenticity in output? How should we address the needs and expectations of students at different levels within the higher education system?
Explore emerging topics related to Innovation in an Era of Disruption in the R&D Management Conference Poster Session.

Despite the importance of science commercialization for economic growth and innovation, innovative start-ups struggle to obtain the financial resource required to develop and commercialize knowledge generated at universities. One reason for such funding gap lies in the information asymmetries that make it difficult for early-stage equity investors, such as Venture Capitalists and Business Angels, to evaluate innovative start-ups through traditional valuation methods based on accounting data. To address this challenge, in this workshop we propose the use of university-based dimensions in the valuation of innovative start-ups. By capturing the distinctiveness of firms originated from the university setting, university-based dimensions can assist investors to deal with the uncertainty surrounding early-stage and breakthrough technologies developed by innovative start-ups.
