Participatory Inovation Conference 2011 Proceedings

Research output: Book/reportAnthologyResearch


Industry and public agencies increasingly adopt user-driven innovation and
open innovation, as they realise that innovation cannot come solely from within
an organisation. Innovation happens in the ‘breaking of the waves’ between
people outside and people inside – because they have different stakes and perspectives.
In academia, new breakthrough contributions to understanding innovation
– and supporting it – will also emerge in the borderlands between
disciplines that traditionally do not collaborate: between languages and design,
and between management and anthropology for instance.
The new discipline of Participatory Innovation gathers theories and methods
across such academic fields that describe how people outside an organisation
can contribute to its innovation. The many papers in this volume have in common
that they identify ways for industry and the public sector to expand innovation
through the participation of users, employees, suppliers, customers etc.
– both on a strategic level, in concrete methods, and in the day-to-day interactions.
PINC 2011 is a forum where participants from different disciplines and
organisations can meet and challenge each other to develop the field of participatory
