Management, Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna in Pisa (Italy) will be organizing the 2015 International R&D Management Conference, from June 23 to 26

The R&D Management Conference, which was hosted in Pisa in 1995 and 2005, is one of the leading international conferences on the subject of R&D and Innovation, and historically attracts scholars, managers and young researchers from all over the world.

The theme chosen for the 2015 edition is "(Fast?) Connecting R&D" and will deal with the connections about research in different fields of science, the partnership between university and industry, and the process from invention into innovation. More generally, the goal is to "update" the state of the art in knowledge and managerial practices in the macro theme of Open Innovation.

Beautiful Pisa: Well known for the world famous Leaning Tower and Piazza dei Miracoli, Pisa guarantees conference attendees an unforgettable experience.  It is very easy to reach through its International Airport (only 1km from the city centre) and through Florence Airport (about one hour from Pisa by car, bus or train).

Registration - don’t miss out! Register before April 30, 2015, and you will only pay €500 instead of €590. We strongly recommend all interested parties to book their accommodation as soon as possible: Pisa is crowded during the month of June due to many celebrations and  events. Information about hotels is available at, where you will also find the preliminary programme, the registration form and links to past R&D Management Conferences.

Please check the Conference program in the attachement.
