Haas Adjunct Professor Henry Chesbrough will be honored as one of the top 50 authors in the field of technology and innovation management by the International Association of Management of Technology at its annual conference in April in Orlando, Fla.
The award is based on a quantitative analysis of research published in leading academic journals between 2003 and 2007.
During the past five years, Chesbrough has published research on open innovation, processes of industrial research and development, management of intellectual property, and services innovation. He also is the author of the 2003 award-winning book Open Innovation: The New Imperative for Creating and Profiting from Technology and its 2007 sequel, Open Business Models: How to Thrive in the New Innovation Landscape.
"It is an honor to receive this recognition of my work," says Chesbrough, executive director of the Center for Open Innovation, which is housed at the Haas School's Institute of Management, Innovation, and Organization. "This award reflects the growing academic interest in new models of industrial R &D. I expect even more research to be published in the next five years on this subject, as we are learning more every day about open and distributed innovation processes."
