Deadline for submissions: UPDATED 28 February 2014
In the area of innovation, design and product development we quite often seem to know that something works in practice, but might lack understanding on the theoretical foundations. Many of the topical issues related to design, development, and innovation that seem to be regarded as “common knowledge” within the industry, are insufficiently founded from the theoretical perspective. On the other hand, results of academic research are often insufficiently disseminated to the industry.

We are calling for evidence-based academic work on topical issues on design, product development and innovation that strengthens both our theoretical understanding, and the connection between theory and practice.
