The University of Strathclyde Glasgow is hosting the R&D Management Conference 2021 on the theme “Innovation in an Era of Disruption”. R&D Management Conference is organized by the RADMA. Due to the ongoing pandemic, this year’s conference is planned to be held online (virtually). This makes it even more exciting, as this has resulted in lower barriers to attend an international conference: a lower registration fee; no additional expenses (travel, hotel, etc); and no hassles about visas. Additionally, you can attend the conference from the comfort of your homes/offices. While all of this makes attending the R&D Management conference exciting, it also makes this year’s theme even more critical. The Covid-19 pandemic is now keeping us to our locations for a second year. Many sectors such as Tourism, Education and Healthcare are disrupted forever. All of this makes it an exciting time to be an innovator/entrepreneur. For us, scholars, this leads to several new and interesting research questions.
While there are over 20 tracks covering many aspects resulting from such disruptions, Ferran, Cristobal, Andreas and I will co-chair the track on “Corporate and Start-up Collaborations“. All of us are excited to see the developments in this growing stream of interorganizational relationships. While we provide an indicative list of topics about the track, we are happy to receive papers on any topic which explores any form of corporate startup linkages including but not limited to: corporate accelerators; corporate incubators; corporate hackathons; corporate venture capital; ideathons; makerspaces; etc. Come, join us, and let us together seek and make sense of the future as it unfolds today.
