Open Innovation in Science (OIS)
 Research Conference  2021

April 7-9, 2021 at CERN IdeaSquare | Geneva

***Information on OIS Research Conference 2021 will be updated regularly*** 

After postponing the OIS Research Conference 2020 due to the COVID-19-virus outbreak, we are happy to announce the new date for the OIS Research Conference 2021 at CERN IdeaSquare in Geneva, Switzerland, on April 7-9, 2021. While we plan for having a physical meeting, time will tell us to what extent virtual elements will be part of the event.

 

Call for Abstracts

The organizing committee of the OIS Research Conference 2021 at CERN IdeaSquare invites you to join the discussion about the role and value of open and collaborative approaches to generating and disseminating scientific research by submitting an abstract of 250-500 words on your empirical or conceptual work to one of the following conference tracks:

 

Track 1: Open and collaborative approaches along the entire scientific research process and their effects. Possible topics include but are not limited to:

  • crowdfunding/crowdsourcing science and citizen science
  • open data/material sharing/re-use
  • OIS approaches to translating science into practice, science-industry relations, academic entrepreneurship
  • platforms facilitating OIS

Track 2: Ecosystems and organizational designs facilitating open and collaborative research approaches. Possible topics include but are not limited to:

  • institutional factors
  • local and national policies
  • intellectual property rights
  • incentive and impact measurement systems

Track 3: Micro-foundations of open and collaborative research approaches. Possible topics include but are not limited to:

  • scientists’ motives for engaging in OIS
  • skills and capabilities for OIS
  • attitudes and beliefs supporting or blocking OIS
  • characteristics and motives of institutional entrepreneurs

 

Please note that

  • we welcome abstracts on both, early-stage research (research proposals and ongoing projects) and completed projects.
  • participating in the conference either requires getting an abstract accepted for presentation at the OIS Research Conference 2021 or being invited to contribute in an active role as a speaker, discussant, panelists or session facilitator.
  • the paper of the submitted abstract must not have been accepted for journal publication.

 

Researching OIS includes investigating whether, how, and under which conditions applying open and collaborative practices along one or more stages of the scientific research process influences novelty, efficiency and/or impact of scientific research, taking a balanced view that recognizes important contingency factors on the individual, organizational and ecosystem-level.
