ERIMA’2010 – 3rd International Symposium on Innovative Management Practices

“Learning to grow”

ERIMA – European Research on Innovation and Management has the objective to constitute a “European Excellence Network” by Universities and Research Centres working actively in the fields of Innovation and Business Management. This Network is constituted by the most active and qualified European R&D institutions in this sphere, with the aim of spreading and promoting new theories, methods and techniques in Innovation and Business Management (I&BM).

The two previous conferences of the ERIMA network in Biarritz (France) and Porto (Portugal) were extraordinarily successful in bringing together participants from all over the world to share their ideas, learn new techniques, and to meet fellow professionals.

The third event, ERIMA’2010 will be held in Wiesbaden, Germany on June 11th and 12th  2010.

Once again, the ERIMA’2010 symposium will bring together business leaders of both SMEs and large companies, as well as public sector representatives, researchers, and practitioners of innovation management. Our objective is to offer an inspirational background to encourage target-oriented discussions of new concepts in creativity and collaborative working environment, systematic innovation and management. Under the motto “learning to grow” the 2010 conference invites participants to particularly explore ways of innovative growth of organisations
