The potential of Open Innovation to cope with Grand Challenges
Worldwide collaborations around Open Innovation and Open Source Initiatives are seen as an increasingly important means of dealing with societal issues like climate change or the Covid Pandemic. In this fourth talk we will explore how to realize the potential of this research stream and discuss which research questions are worthy of more attention. Johanna Mair and Thomas Gegenhuber will talk about Open Social Innovation and the Learnings from the #WirvsVirus and #UpdateDeutschland initiatives. Alberto Bertello places the focus on the 'EUvsVirus' hackathon and discusses the organizational principles to work in an online hackathon to connect civil society, innovators, partners, and investors across different contexts.
About the speakers
Johanna Mair is a Professor of Organization, Strategy and Leadership at the Hertie School of Governance in Berlin and Visiting Scholar at the Stanford Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society. Her research lies at the intersection of organizations, institutions and social change. More specifically, she is interested in how institutions stifle and enable social and economic progress and the role of organizational activity in this process.
Alberto Bertello is a Research Fellow at the Department of Management at the University of Torino, Italy. He is currently conducting research at the intersection between collaborative innovation and grand challenges to investigate novel forms of organizing in the face of complex issues such as climate change, digital transformation, and the COVID- 19 pandemic.
Thomas Gegenhuber is a Professor at Leuphana University Lüneburg and an associated researcher at JKU Linz. Within the domain of digital transformation, Thomas explores new forms of organizing, various types of openness (open strategy, open social innovation, and open government) and (cultural) entrepreneurship in a digital economy.
