The cultural economy of open innovation

On December 2-3 we will be convening an international ‘brainstorming’ workshop on the cultural economy of open innovation. The event will be held jointly at the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) and Spain’s School for Industrial Organisation (Escuela de Organización Industrial, EOI). Admission is free.

The language and practices of open innovation have taken hold of the imagination of urban life in the early 21st century. From the rise of ‘free software’ in the mid 1990s to the current adoption and promotion of ‘free culture’ in places and contexts as varied as public administration, national systems of innovation, urban planning or user-centred and local community initiatives, the imaginary of ‘openness’ is pervading social life. In this light, open innovation has transubstantiated from an original techno-economic concept to a wholesale sociological paradigm: ‘openness’ as a self-explanatory and emerging figure of the social.

The seminar inaugurates a three-year research project at the Spanish National Research Council which aims to study from a critical and interdisciplinary perspective the current emergence of openness as a figure of, and configurative framework for, the socio-economic structure of our contemporary. We want to study the cultural economy of openness as a new sociological paradigm: What contexts and processes legitimate and enable the circulation of openness as a cultural category across organisations, institutions and communities?
