    Open innovation (OI) is a management concept that describes the purposive management of knowledge flows across organizational boundaries. It has attracted significant attention from management researchers and has been studied using a variety of theoretical and methodological perspectives. At the same time, researchers in a growing number of disciplines and divisions are attracted to this domain. And while our understanding of OI is generally increasing, many challenges in researching OI remain and new ones emerge.

    The first version of this PDW was organized in 2014, and the earlier PDWs have resulted in a publication (with twenty-three involved authors) in Industry & Innovation . This article proposes a number of research categories that are used to frame this version of the PDW. 

    This PDW gathers a number of active scholars conducting research related to OI. These scholars will share and build on their experiences in researching OI to identify some key challenges—and associated opportunities—to help advance research in this domain. By building on recently identified OI research categories, the facilitators will introduce and discuss these challenges, which cover a broad range of levels of analysis, various theoretical perspectives, and methodological approaches. Following this, they will moderate roundtable discussions with interested participants. Pre-registration (by submitting a short text with research interests) is recommended for the roundtables, which have pre-defined topics, but attendance is open as long as space permits.
