Managing creative processes and creative business – network and seminar

Interested in research on managing and leading creative processes and creative business? Come along to our seminar and join a new network!

We are launching an interdisciplinary network of researchers and practitioners interested in issues dealing with leading and managing creative processes and creative business in different contexts. As the first event of the network we are organizing a one-day seminar on Creative Arts and Business Management at Aalto Media Factory on June 6th, 2012.

The purpose of this seminar is to gather together researchers and practitioners from various fields to present and discuss either their ongoing research or their ideas for future studies on the management of creative organizations and processes. Relevant disciplines could include e.g. organizational and management studies, marketing, film and television, design as well as cultural and arts management.

The submissions may be full papers, but we also welcome warmly brief idea papers and/or posters suggesting an idea for an article or a research project, or for forming a research group around an issue. Possible themes include but are not limited to:
– leading and managing creative work
– creative leadership in business and public organizations
– management of creative projects
– innovation management and knowledge sharing
– marketing creative immaterial productions and products
– intellectual property rights in creative business
– strategic management in creative organizations.

We invite interested researchers regardless of their discipline to prepare an abstract (max. 250 words) on their research paper or idea, and submit it via Webropol at
by April 20th, 2012. Detailed instructions for preparing seminar presentations will be given in May 2012.
