New Workshop Series in Collaboration with the University of Essex, Southend

A new workshop for PhD students (staff also welcome) in international business, entrepreneurship, and innovation, jointly with the University of Essex Southend has been initiated. It meets once per term, alternating between Birkbeck and Essex.

Dr Federica Rossi presented a paper on “What governance of university-industry interactions increases the value of industrial inventions?” at the Birkbeck-Essex Workshop on International Business and Innovation, held at Southend on December 6th 2017. The workshop was mainly aimed at PhD students. The presentation discussed not only the paper’s conceptual framework, data and results but also reflected on the development of the research idea, the management of the research collaboration and on the publication process.

The first session at Birkbeck, hosted by the Centre for Innovation Management Research, will be on 28th February, with papers presented by Prof Marcela Miozzo (Kings) and Prof Tomasz Mickiewicz (Aston), and responses by Birkbeck & Essex students. This joins the ongoing Birkbeck-Kings Marketing Seminar as a tool for engaging our students with a broader research community.
