September 2nd 2011 International IMP³rove Symposium: Introducing the IMP³rove – European Innovation Management Academy

How are breakthrough trends in Innovation Management being generated? Moreover, what is required to consider them as educational patterns to be followed in the academic context of Innovation Management? An enquiry to have in mind as the world of innovation evolves at high speed and empirical progress needs to be supported by a theoretical background. In this framework, IMP³rove gives the opportunity to the academic community to take part in the development of a new concept: the IMP³rove – European Innovation Management Academy.

As the intellectual property of IMP³rove will be transferred to this new concept, the occasion to contemplate future synergies in the area of education is being provided. Prospects of joint academic programs and research projects in partnership with academic establishments are aimed to be conceived.

Discussion of new conceptions and tendencies in Innovation Management within a diverse group of participants, coming from different backgrounds, is a key factor to be one step ahead in the Innovation Management discipline. Collaboration within a large network of practitioners is a valuable contribution to success.

At the first International IMP³rove Symposium the importance of Innovation Management for academic research and education as well as partnering opportunities with the future IMP³rove Academy were discussed. After the opening by Dr. Peter Noyes, Vice Chancellor at the University of Wales, Newport, UK, more than 30 representatives from business schools, universities and universities for applied science from Latvia to Portugal, from UK to Italy and even from Australia shared their experience in Innovation Management research and education. They clearly expressed the need for more research and especially for more education in the area of Innovation Management. This meets the increasing demand of innovation managers and at the same time will improve the employability of young people in countries such as Portugal or Spain where the crisis has caused a high unemployment rate of university graduates. Practical examples on the integration of IMP³rove services from Germany, Switzerland and Australia stimulated the discussion on the further up-take at other academic institutions. Detailed results will be published in the IMP³rove Symposium report shortly.
