Webinar: Should your company worry about Open Innovation?

Category: Webinar

Open innovation refers to “innovating with partners” to develop and market new technologies. By opening up their innovation process, companies can share development costs and risks, speed up product development and generate additional revenue streams. However, open innovation also entails risks for companies and managing open innovation projects is not easy.

During this webinar, we will discuss the importance of open innovation and how firms should manage open innovation projects with different types of business partners. We will rely on the findings of a recent scientific study carried out for one of Europe’s largest manufacturing firms.
