Symposium on "Tensions between value creation and value capture in open innovation" at Academy of Management Meeting

Open innovation symposium

During the 2014 Academy of Management (AOM) Meeting, Marcel Bogers (University of Southern Denmark) and Ann-Kristin Zobel (University of California, Berkeley) organized a panel symposium on "Open Innovation: Tensions between Value Creation and Value Capture?" The symposium was well received and attracted a good audience with about 40 people.

The purpose of this symposium was to bring scholars together to discuss potential tensions between value creation and value capture in the context of open innovation. The symposium suggested different approaches and strategies that can help firms in resolving these tensions. In particular, we focused on appropriation strategies (intellectual property and contracts), selective revealing, and business models as three concrete approaches for managing and resolving tensions between value creation and value capture in the context of open innovation.

After an introduction to the topic and symposium, the panelists presented a short overview of their respective perspective on the topic, followed by a moderated discussion.
