Standardization as an open innovation activity

Open Innovation

An important but understudied form of open innovation is the network form (network as defined by Powell 1990). The theme for EURAS 2016 is ‘Co-opetition and Open Innovation’, and so I was invited to deliver the keynote address. The slides for my talk (entitled “How standards research can inform open innovation”) are online at SlideShare. For the 2014 book, I sought to bring together the prior research on the various network forms and tie them to open innovation.
