Chris Freeman Centenary Lecture Series



CALL FOR PRESENTATIONS

INNOVATION SYSTEMS-102
 
PRACTICAL APPLICATION OF THE THEORY
 

Christopher Freeman is the founder of modern Innovation Studies. His influence on the field has been phenomenal. This online lecture series organized by CRIS-IS.ORG is a tribute to Freeman, in his birth centenary year. The first season of the series titled ‘Innovation Systems-101’ dealt with the theoretical aspects of Innovation Systems (IS). The series was noted for its content and participation. In response to the popular demand for a series on practical application of IS, we announce Innovation Systems-102.
 

Target audience of Innovation Systems-102 is budding researchers, grad-students and inter-disciplinarians who aspire to use the analytical frame of Innovation Systems (IS) in their research, but face difficulty in the practical application of the theory.  IS-102 is designed to give them an opportunity to listen to and network with scholars already working in the domain. We hope this will embolden grad-students, especially from Global South, where the training facility in 'IS' is still scanty.

The IS-102 series will start on 8th October 2021, and feature lectures once in two weeks.

Each session will consist of a presentation followed by comments, giving an opportunity to presenters to have their work and ideas discussed by senior innovation scholars. Simultaneously, IS-102 offers the opportunity to those attending to learn from real-life experience, how theory can be applied in research.  Other benefits include a certificate and enhanced visibility in the academic network.

About the Series

Chris Freeman Centenary Lecture Series

Christopher Freeman is the founder of modern Innovation Studies.

His influence on the field has been phenomenal. This online lecture series is a tribute to Freeman, in his birth centenary year.

 

The target audience is budding researchers, grad-students and inter-disciplinarians who aspire to use the analytical frame of Innovation Systems (IS) in their research, but lack a thorough grounding in the theory.  The Chris Freeman Centenary Lecture series is designed to serve as a 'text book', giving them an opportunity to listen to and network with scholars already working in the domain.

We hope this would embolden grad-students, especially from Global South, where adequate training facility in 'IS' is still scanty. The online lecture series started on 7-January and would last throughout the year.

 

The first series titled Innovation Systems-101 was streamed live-online between 07.01.2021 and 07.04.2021 and was a glaring success. The second season titled Innovation Systems-102 - Practical Application of the Theory will be launched during October, 2021.
