Previous Editions

The Concept

The event dared to debate the applicability of open innovation in Brazil, bringing experts, executives, academics, policy makers and the founder of the open innovation concept: Professor Henry Chesbrough. » Website

With a two-day duration, the event had the exclusive participation of Chesbrough and 46 panelists, in four panels and six technical sessions. There were 350 registered participants, from 156 different institutions, creating a moment in which open innovation practitioners could meet, share experiences and interact. » Website

In 2010 we became a three-day event. The main new was the creation of an intensive course elaborated and taught by Chesbrough and Brazilian experts. The main goal was to establish a group of national leaders in open innovation practices for Brazil. » Website

The seminar was held to a much larger audience if compared to the past editions. Once focused in innovation managers, in 2011 the Open Innovation Seminar expanded to a wider audience by also involving innovation practitioners. In that edition, we introduced the concept of Open Innovation Arena. » Website
