Doctoral Colloquium: Saturday 27th June and Sunday 28th June, 2020
Conference: Monday 29th June - Wednesday 1st July, 2020

The honour of hosting the 40th Anniversary conference was awarded to the University in recognition of our research excellence and internationally-leading reputation for innovation and business engagement. It is the first cross-faculty conference to be held at the University of Strathclyde between Strathclyde Business School, Engineering and Science.

The theme of the conference, Innovation across Boundaries: Historical Reflections and Future Visions, highlights the increasing inter-disciplinary nature of innovation management and the importance of the interface between academe and industry.   It reflects the origins and trajectory of the topic area, encouraging forward thinking by assessing state-of-the-art trends and offers opportunities for discussions on a broad range of innovation related topics.

Bringing together the international leaders of innovation theory and practice, the conference will provide an excellent forum for multidisciplinary debate.
