Henry Chesbrough – Open Innovation Seminar

Type de manifestation
Conférence/Séminaire/Table ronde
European Investment Bank


Hosted by the European Investment Bank and co-organised with AMCHAM, Prof. Marko Torkkeli (LUT) proudly invites you to the Open Innovation Seminar featuring the keynote speaker Henry Chesbrough, the "Godfather of Open Innovation". Chesbrough's keynote speech will deal with “Open Innovation: Insight and foresight”.

His talk will address how to effectively make use of unused ideas, the fundamentals of a successful open innovation strategy, and the future of open innovation. The event will also be an opportunity for the audience to ask direct questions from the open innovation guru.

The event is co-organized by Lappeenranta University of Technology where Chesbrough is nominated as Visiting Honorary Professor.


Participation in the event is free of charge and open to the general public, but early registration is required. Note: We are expecting a large number of representatives from industry, public bodies and academia, therefore, we encourage registering as soon as possible. As the number of seats is limited, we reserve the right to close registration before May 23, 2014, and to wait-list those who sign up after registration has closed.

Feel free to sign up, but note that registration will be confirmed only after receiving a formal notification from AMCHAM. Please also note that there is a restriction of the number of participants per organisation.
