open innovation

Open Innovation was defined by Henry Chesbrough as the use of purposive inflows and outflows of knowledge to accelerate internal innovation.
According to Vanhaverbeke, we should care about open innovation in small firms in the so-called low- and medium-tech industries.

ABOUT OPEN INNOVATION

This original notion of Open Innovation was largely based on transferring knowledge, expertise and even resources from one company or research institution to another. This assumes that firms can and should use external ideas as well as internal ideas. And internal and external paths to market, as they seek to improve their performance.

The concept
of Open Innovation is constantly evolving and is moving from linear, bilateral transactions and collaborations towards dynamic, networked, multi-collaborative innovation ecosystems; a trend that was recognized by an Independent Expert Group on Knowledge Transfer and Open Innovation, set up by DG Research and Innovation in 2012.

This means
that a specific innovation can no longer be seen as the result of predefined and isolated innovation activities. But rather as the outcome of a complex co-creation process involving knowledge flows across the entire economic and social environment.
