In this policy brief Science2Society explains and demonstrate how Open Innovation (IO) concepts has been experimented and practically applied to seven interaction mechanisms, demonstrating their empirical implementation and their sustainability.
The guidelines in this document will support policy makers in their decision-making process and provide suggestions for action.
“Policy-makers can help identify the segments of the innovation process that can be ‘opened’. These segments are those that should receive dedicated support, such as capacity building and innovation services delivered by experts.”
Science2Society is an EU-funded project that aims to boost innovation efficiency across Europe. To improve the output of innovative processes, Science2Society analyses business creation, the use of knowledge in creating solutions, products and applications generating value from academic and scientific research. Science2Society brings together practitioners and system experts, including universities, industries and research & technology organisations. Through this interaction, the project makes available a wealth of experiences and practices which can help improve the performance of innovation processes, introducing the principles of open innovation.
