Open Innovation in Science (OIS)
Research Conference 2024

We are already excited to announce that the next OIS Research Conference will take place May 21-23, 2024 at The Shard, London, in cooperation with Warwick Business School – save the date! We will – once again – collaboratively advance our understanding of processes, effects and boundary conditions of openness and collaboration in science. 

Special conference theme: Zeroing in on the scientist: Navigating Dynamic Challenges in the Modern Research Landscape.

About the conference

Our annual OIS Research Conference brings together scholars from across disciplines who are interested in investigating and discussing the role and value of openness and collaboration in science. In addition to inspirational paper sessions, we also “walk the talk” by experimenting with novel ways to do our own research. In the past, we have co-conceptualized the OIS research field from scratch (Beck et al., 2020), co-developed research proposals with “users” of our research (Beck et al., 2021), explored how Artificial Intelligence will influence openness and collaboration in science (Beck, Poetz, & Sauermann, 2022) and how it can help with creating synergies between scientific and societal impact (Beck, Grimpe, Poetz & Sauermann, 2023).
