We are excited to invite you to participate in the 5th International
Conference on Collaborative Innovation Networks (COINs 15), 12–14 March

COINS15 brings together practitioners, researchers and students of the
emerging science of collaboration to share their work, learn from each
other, and get inspired through creative new ideas.
Where science, design, business and art meet, COINS15 looks at the emerging

social movements. Through interactive workshops, professional
presentations, and fascinating keynotes, COINS15 combines a wide range of
