The fifth Innovation and Entrepreneurship Conversation will be held on Imperial College London’s South Kensington campus on 12th-13th September this year, organised by Bart Clarysse, Markus Perkmann, Anne ter Wal, Anu Wadhwa. This annual workshop brings together cutting-edge research in innovation and entrepreneurship to explore an emergent and important theme.

This year’s theme addresses entrepreneurship and innovation in the corporation. While innovation remains key to organizational success and survival, we are witnessing a proliferation of new approaches to innovation. Once dominant, the R&D laboratory is being supplemented by a host of alternative approaches to organizing innovation, including corporate accelerators, lean innovation labs, open innovation, crowd sourcing and various types of engagement with start-up companies. Often, organizations seek to deploy entrepreneurial methods in their attempt to spur innovation, with wide-reaching implications for internal innovation processes, employee incentives, the size and shape of organizational units and the nature of collaboration with external parties.
