IFIP-8.6 "Open IT-based Innovation"

22.10.2008

Entre el 22 y el 24 de octubre se celebra en la ETSI de Telecomunicación el Congreso Internacional IFIP 8.6 "Open IT-based Innovation". El acto inaugural tendrá lugar el 22 de octubre a las 09:45 hrs. en el Salón de Actos del Edificio C.

The IFIP 8.6 conference focus will be in new theories and tools and best practices in cooperative and network-based IT transfer and diffusion.

Today, most innovative firms in the IT sector cannot possess all the knowledge and business assets they need to be competitive. They must frequently rely on formal and informal agreements with partners not only in order to cooperate in technology/product development or system integration, but also to complete their capabilities in the associated technology transfer or diffusion activities. As a consequence, technology based innovation processes are changing to adapt themselves to deep changes in organisational contexts and they are becoming more open.

Relevant topics of the conference are:

  • Cooperative IT transfer and diffusion theory and practice
  • Public-private partnerships for IT transfer and diffusion
  • The role of national, regional and local authoriries in cooperative diffusion theory
  • Public procurement of IT services and other demand-side policies as catalysers for open innovation
  • IT tools to support cooperative technology transfer and diffusion in the context of Web 2.0 and future 3.0
  • Case studies for specific technologies, geographical contexts, or organisations related to IT or IT-supported fields
  • Open innovation models for public and private organisations
  • IP rights managements
  • Open business models in non-IT sectors
  • Products, services and new ventures based on IT open innovation
