IRG Symposium on Coworking
The IRG Symposium 2018 is supported by Fredrikstad Living Lab for Tourism and Innovation (FLLTI). The symposium theme is Coworking. It takes on the challenges of mobilizing people, organizations, networks and technologies to solve problems, continuous improve and deliver innovation. It is challenging industrialists and researchers alike and is actualized in Regional innovation, the Learning Organization, Lean Operations, Design Thinking and other high involvement approaches. It requires new ways of doing business, innovative strategies and new approaches to research.
The Innovation Research Group (IRG) was established in 2014 to support high-quality research in innovation, including innovation processes, design thinking and early phase innovation.
To achieve its mission, IRG is committed to:
Support research for publication in peer reviewed journals (Level 1 and 2)
Organize academic writing workshops and symposiums
Implement findings in faculty of engineering programs and courses
Build networks and arenas with relevant national and international stakeholders
