Our group connects and develops organisational leaders who wish to learn, share and collaborate to tackle innovation management challenges & proactively shape new solutions for the most challenging problems.


Our goal is to discuss innovation management challenges that industries face and to identify how researchers can help solve them.

ISPIM is the major global network bringing together innovation management professionals from all areas, including academics and practitioners. It thus presents itself as natural habitat in which idea, knowledge and experience exchange between academics and practitioners can grow and prosper.   Our aim is to build an effective collaboration between practitioners and academics. We will deal with any innovation management related challenges that are relevant for practice and academia.   


Our Target audience: Practitioners, Researchers, Consultants, Intermediaries


If you are a researcher, a practitioner, a consultant, a community & business developer, an entrepreneur interested in innovation and are willing to connect industry and academia, this SIG is for you.


We will be happy to discuss collaboration opportunities. Subscribe to the group or contact us
