Open Innovation in Science (OIS) Research Conference 2023


May 8-10, 2023


Vienna, Austria (hybrid)



Started in 2019, this conference brings together scholars from across disciplines who are interested in investigating and discussing the role and value of openness and collaboration in science. In addition to inspirational paper sessions, we also “walk the talk” by experimenting with novel ways to do our own research. In the past, we have co-conceptualized the OIS field from scratch (Beck et al., 2022), co-developed research proposals with “users” of our research (Beck et al., 2021), and explored how Artificial Intelligence will influence openness and collaboration in science (Beck, Poetz, & Sauermann, 2022).

The 2023 special conference theme focuses on SYNERGIES AND TENSIONS AROUND IMPACT: HOW DOES OIS COME INTO PLAY? Hence, we will critically reflect upon the influence of openness and collaboration on achieving scientific and societal impact. Do OIS practices promote societal impact at the expense of scientific productivity? Or, do they help us to achieve both and, if so, under what conditions?
