15th International CINet Conference
Operating Innovation - Innovating Operations
7-9 September 2014 - Budapest, Hungary
*** Submission deadline extended to 31 March 2014 ***
The Continuous Innovation Network (CINet) is a global network set up to bring together researchers and industrialists working in the field of Continuous Innovation. The mission of CINet is to develop into a school of thought on Continuous Innovation. Consistent with this mission, CINet organises an annual conference. This announcement concerns the 15th CINet conference, which will take place in Budapest, Hungary, 7-9 September 2014. The theme of the conference, “Operating Innovation – Innovating Operations”, reflects the hypercompetition-driven need for companies to turn product and, consequently also, process and organizational, innovation into a regular activity, and make innovation part of their daily business.
Corvinus University and CINet look forward to a stimulating exchange of insights into and experiences with innovation between researchers and practitioners from all over the world and, especially, Eastern Europe.
Furthermore, CINet promotes a PhD Network to foster research collaboration among PhD students and their institutions on innovation in the widest sense of the word. As part of that initiative, a PhD workshop is organised just prior to the 15th CINet conference, on 5-6 September. Besides that a CIYA Workshop will be organized, aimed at young academics working in the field of continuous innovation.
In 2011 we started with a new initiative: developmental workshops that will be held during one of the session time slots. These workshops are aimed specifically at encouraging and promoting increased collaboration between members of CINet. More specifically, the workshops will provide young and more experienced researchers the opportunity to present projects still in their developmental phase for the purposes of identifying potential project partners and gaining feedback from CINet members with project management experience.
Who should attend
Both academics involved in research on innovation and change as well as practitioners and consultants involved in management innovation and change are invited to submit papers relevant to the conference theme, or simply register for the conference to gain access to leading research and practices in this key area. Also academics interested in sharing industry experience are welcome.
