INNOVATING IN THE OPEN | Harvard Law School, Wasserstein Hall, Room WCC 1010 | January 29, 2015, 3:30pm – 4:30 pm | Efforts to innovate and promote innovation often proceed in black boxes, out of concern for intellectual property protection and first-mover advantage.An alternative model, however, prioritizes engagement with users, consumers, competitors, and the general public throughout the creative process. Devotees of this more open approach to innovation view the risks of early disclosure as outweighed by the benefits of drawing on the wisdom of the crowd. The Cyberlaw Clinic and the Berkman Center for Internet & Society — along with the Harvard Innovation Lab, the HLS Food Law and Policy Clinic, and the Harvard Business School Digital Initiative — are pleased to present this panel discussion. The event will feature Matt Tucker from the HBS Digital Initiative (talking about the Open Forum platform), Hila Lifshitz-Assaf from NYU’s Stern School of Business, Jeff Warren from Public Lab, and Emily Broad Leib from the HLS Food Law and Policy Clinic, in a discussion moderated by the Cyberlaw Clinic’s Chris Bavitz. Panelists will address the topic of open innovation and how it can be used to improve development of everything from consumer products and services to software code to policy proposals. The event will cover the topic from theoretical and practical perspectives and will inform the audience about ways to get involved in open innovation at Harvard, including through the Deans’ Food System Challenge (share ideas here; apply here).
