About this Event

SAMS Event: Open Collaboration for Innovation and Change in Healthcare and Medicine

This workshop aims to provide a platform for a series of discussions on the complex management challenges we now face in healthcare and medicine. The event will explore the emerging digital environments of innovation and collaboration that result in the architecture of open participation and creativity to address complex healthcare and medicine challenges.

The workshop will feature a number of presentations with an assigned facilitator who will lead discussions after the presentation. The event invites conceptual and/or empirical papers that can advance our understanding of open innovation in healthcare and medicine. Extended abstracts of up to 1,000 words should be emailed to Dr Gloria Appiah by the 19th January 2020 on g.appiah@kent.ac.uk. The abstracts will be used to select an appropriate set of papers that can lead to further networking and collaboration opportunities between participants. If you would like to attend without presenting, please email Dr Gloria Appiah to reserve a place asap for catering purposes.

In conjunction, the event will include a Professional Development Workshop for doctoral candidates and Early Career Researchers in any management-related discipline. The workshop will focus on professional development with a particular emphasis on strategies for successful publishing and managing an academic career.

The workshop will also feature a Panel Discussion with researchers, practitioners and government agencies to debate the paradigmatic shift towards open and collaborative innovation models in healthcare and medicine.
