Organizing creativity for innovation: EURAM 2014 Call for papers
Stan / September 24, 2013

In the EURAM 2014 (4-7 june 2014) conference in Valencia, a track will be organized titled: “Organizing creativity for innovation: Multidisciplinary perspectives, theories, and practices”. The track is open to a papers on a variety of subjects focused on creativity and innovation. Papers on ‘Employee-Driven Innovation’ are very welcome.


EURAM 2014 Call for papers: “Organizing creativity for innovation: Multidisciplinary perspectives, theories, and practices”.

This track intends to address research on organisational creativity and innovation. We hope to discuss which
processes, mechanisms, behaviors, tools and methods promote or hamper creative and innovative efforts of
individuals and teams, and how they can be managed in organisations. We intend to include knowledge from various disciplines that traditionally do not much work together. We will bring together scholars from different disciplines that conduct research that is relevant for socio‐organisational context (e.g. within management theory and practice, organisational behavior, human resource management, entrepreneurship, strategic management,), socio‐technical systems or physical work context (e.g. within architecture, interior design, ergonomics, environmental psychology).

We welcome both conceptual/theoretical and empirical contributions with a variety of research strategies including surveys, experiments, case studies, ethnographic studies, discourse studies and reviews. We focus on “Organising” which includes (HR) management practices, leadership, organizational context, and strategic environment for creativity and innovation (e.g. HR practices such as recruitment and selection, job design, training and development, performance appraisal, compensation and rewards; leadership styles, organisational work environment design, physical work environment design, organisational culture and climate, and strategies). We focus on the “Creativity” of individuals and teams in general as well as with a specific creativity task (such as designers, consultants, managers, marketers). Innovation includes products, services, processes, marketing, business model innovations but also other types of innovations such as continuous and discontinuous, open or ecological innovations for sustainability. We hope to explore how organising creativity for innovation can affect firm “performance”.

Topics include,

Organisational design for creativity and innovation
Work environment design for creativity and innovation
Organisational culture and climate for creativity and innovation
Human resource management for creativity and innovation
Leadership for creativity and innovation
Strategies for creativity and innovation
Knowledge management for creativity and innovation
