The OI2 Conference 2015

After the two previous conference editions which were held in one of Europe's innovation hubs Dublin (May 2013 and June 2014), next year's global thought leadership event will take place in the vibrant city of Espoo, Finland on 8th-9th June.

During the inaugural event in 2013 high-level decision makers, leading innovation experts and entrepreneurial practitioners from across the globe co-created a document to pave the way for future innovation policies - the Dublin Innovation Declaration.

The 2014 conference solidified and progressed the solutions agreed upon at the 2013 conference, and discussed new approaches in innovation adoption based on open business models.

Like the previous editions in 2015 thought leaders are invited to share their Open Innovation findings in the practice. The industrial and socio-economic aspects will be strongly presented in this two-day conference.

Following the tradition the conference will be organised by the European Commission DG CONNECT's Open Innovation Group (OISPG) together with Intel Labs Europe, kindly supported by Aalto University, City of Espoo and other partners. Save the date and follow our Open Innovation page and social media for updates.
