Joining ERIMA

The members of ERIMA are povided with many benefits.

Added Value

The value of ERIMA membership comes from the exchange of practical experience across business sectors, academicians and professional communities. This helps people working at all levels to benchmark performance, improve innovation processes and achieve sufficient, well-managed R&D. ERIMA focuses on the interests and needs of the partners. Our approach is based on encouraging informal, informative contacts, within and beyond industry, politician and academician. Participants share their personal knowledge and this contributes to promote exchanges.

International conferences

We organise an international conference every year in one of ERIMA partners'country. The symposium is structured around the main theme of research on innovation management. The scientific commitee is composed of the members of ERIMA. In 2007, the symposium took place in Biarritz, France. We had over 100 participants. In 2008, it was in Porto, Portugal on October 30th and 31st. Again, we had over 100 participants from all over the world.

Communicating research on innovation management

The ERIMA network allows the exchange of researchers, knowledge, methodologies and tools. Due to the close relationship between the ERIMA members and with other centres of excellence all over the world, the execution of common projects is easier. This is a major opportunity for the partners since ERIMA facilitate the exchanges.
