Perspectives on Open Innovation - New approaches to the management and exploitation of R&D

An afternoon seminar from the R&D Society, focusing on Open Innovation and different organisational perspectives.

This seminar and workshop will focus on Open Innovation and different organisational perspectives.

The opening talk will be given by Richard Halkett, Executive Director of NESTA’s Policy & Research Unit, who will summarise recent work on innovation policy from NESTA including the important role that Open Innovation has to play in future innovation policy.

Dr Treve Willis, Director of the Innovation Advisory Service South East, will introduce the concepts of Open Innovation and explain how the Innovation Advisory Service - a publicly-funded programme - approaches the challenge of Open Innovation and achieves objectives of increasing the rate and scale of innovation in the South East. He will give several case examples of Open Innovation in practice.

Dr Neil MacGilp, Group Technical Director of SABMiller, will then explain the SABMiller approach to Open Innovation, given the vast range of technological and other innovation needs of a major international brewer.

The presentations will be followed by a panel discussion chaired by Dr Andrew Mackintosh
