IIM at IPDMC 2020
Albeit meeting the research community at this year’s Innovation and Product Development Management Conference (IPDMC) in Antwerp, Belgium was only possible virtually given the current situation, the IIM would like to acknowledge and congratulate the organizers for the successful event. The IIM would also like to extend its greetings to all participating researchers and great keynote speakers such as Prof. Robert A. Burgelman (Stanford Graduate School of Business, Corporate Governance Research Initiative) and Prof. Christopher Tucci (Imperial College Business School, Digital Strategy & Innovation; Ecole polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL)).
