The conference is focusing on the following questions: How can we turn our traditional educational institutions into (r)evolutionary leading organisations? How can innovation be stimulated? It will observe and analyse how open innovation can be used to transform today’s educational institutions. Educational institutions have mostly taken an evolutionary approach to respond to the challenges of the modern world. But the incremental innovation of our educational institutions is not sufficient to cope with the ongoing fundamental transformation of societies. Change in most education institutions has started too late and is executed too slowly to meet the challenges of the 21st century. Only open, disruptive innovation offers higher education institutions strategic choices to overcome long-standing and deeply-rooted orthodoxies and to make them fit for the future. A key issue in this situation is to develop a balanced view on the topic from all perspectives: strategic, pedagogical, managerial as well as technological. We aim to bring in contributions from different domains and disciplines towards open innovation and quality.
