    You will get access to fellow product development and management academics in the university space, the latest academic research with a subscription to the Journal of Product Innovation Management and the opportunity to present - and get feedback on - your latest theories, empirical findings and conceptual frameworks at the PDMA Research Forum. Relevant and robust research can cross into practice via PDMA's integrated membership.
