International Open and User Innovation Conference 2021


OUI 2021

Montag, 21.06.2021, 08.00 Uhr


OUI 2020+1 will be held on June 21 and 22, 2021, as a hybrid conference in Zoom and at RWTH Aachen, one of the leading institutes of technology in Europe. Hostet by the Institute for Technology & Innovation Management (RWTH TIM) at RWTH’s School of Business & Economics.

Current notice from the host:

The OUI 2020+1 edition (the postponed event originally scheduled for July 2020) consists of a virtual and (hopefully) an optional physical component:

  • OUI2020+1 will be held virtually with optional physical presence in Aachen (if the circumstances in Summer 2021 will allow a safe physical meeting).
  • Main conference sessions (paper presentations and keynotes) will be in the afternoons / early evening hours of CET (= morning hours of ET) via Zoom on June 21 and 22, 2021. We will work hard to make the OUI Virtual a truly interactive experience — no streaming of recorded talks, for example! Focus is on interaction, discussion, exchange, and learning.
  • We will assess the COVID situation in the coming months and decide in April 2021, whether we will offer an additional physical conference option for participants who are able (and willing) to travel in summer. The optional physical part of the OUI in Aachen will take place during the CET morning and evening hours. Workshops, discussion sessions, paper development, and dinner activities are providing the unique OIO networking experience for those who can attend in person.
