What is Open Innovation?
OI is an emerging practice that is gradually being adopted by organizations. It takes advantage of the pervasive digital technologies to accelerate the speed of the innovation process to achieve the widest openness possible. Since the mid-2000s, significant progress has been made to support collaborative innovation processes with digital tools.
Organizations are willing and able to integrate OI practices into their vision of the future, with ways to manage innovation down to regular operations reaching and managing different levels of openness.
Open Innovation Platform example
Nir-vana is a great example of the digital transformation of businesses that adopt the modern trends in smart digital technologies.
We have co-created our own open innovation platform, NIR-VANA. Nir-vana is the most relevant open and connected network for European business development piloted on Enterprise Europe Network & SME associations.
Working with NIR-VANA, enterprises can adopt the Open Innovation model, collaborate with an extended ecosystem of partners and more quickly incorporate emerging technologies into their operations to drive business transformation while minimizing risk.
Our approach is collaborative and relationship-based.
We use technological tools like NIR-VANA and always combine on- and offline services.
