Tuesday 4 & Wednesday 5 August, 2020
SFU Beedie’s Chang Institute for Entrepreneurship and #SFUInnovates, Vancouver, BC, Canada
There are many reasons why we currently don’t get enough scientific inventions out of universities to address global challenges such as climate change and curing disease.
Some of these reasons have to do with innovation policy at the national, regional and university levels.
Some of them have to do with firm strategy. For instance, how open innovation practices promote or constrain science-based ventures and radical innovation.
Some of the reasons have to do with the ways we educate and support students and faculty in such areas as opportunity creation, technology-market matching, and managing under uncertainty, to give them the best chance of creating successful and impactful science-based ventures.
We invite you to come and join us in Vancouver at our R&D Management Symposium, where we will discuss and debate our research, experience and pedagogy on the theme of Invention to Innovation: Creating the Conditions for Impact.
The 2020 R&D Management Symposium will be hosted by Simon Fraser University’s Chang Institute for Entrepreneurship and the Beedie School of Business in August 2020.
This symposium is affiliated with the R&D Management Conference, an international gathering of academics and practitioners interested in the study of research, development, technology management and innovation. The conference provides a valuable means of communication and exchange of ideas among academics and practitioners.
