THE CONCEPT

The Summer School is a valuable experience for anyone involved in doctoral work in the area of technology and innovation management. It provides a unique opportunity for doctoral students in technology management to learn from presentations of leading academics in the field and to meet colleagues with similar research interests. During the intensive one-week course, the participating students have the opportunity to discuss their research programs with senior professors and with other PhD students in interactive workshops, and to meet the editors of the journals R&D Management, and Creativity and Innovation Management.

The European Doctoral Summer School was first organised by Professor Klaus Brockhoff at the University of Kiel in 1991. Since then the School has been held in different locations: Manchester Business School in the UK; Katholieke Universiteit Leuven in Belgium, University of Twente, the Netherlands; Politecnico di Milano, Italy; WHU Otto Beisheim Graduate School of Management, Vallendar, Germany. Since 2000, the European Doctoral Summer School in Technology Management has been organised jointly with EIASM (see www.eiasm.be). The number of alumni from the Summer School now exceeds 300. A considerable number of Summer School alumni and tutors are still in touch with each other and play active roles in the field of Technology Management.

Open Innovation and Technology Management is the topic which has been chosen for the 2009 Summer School. It is well known that Open Innovation is a topic introduced by Henry Chesbrough which has generated enormous interest, both among practitioners and academic scholars, as well as some criticisms. The aim of the Summer School is to discuss and share empirical research developed by PhD students worldwide about the interactions between Open Innovation and Technology Management.
