Open innovation strategies and practices – ManETEI Report

Date: February 14, 2014

For the last four years, the Marie Curie Initial Training Network (coordinated by The University of Leeds Business School) has brought together a diverse group of leading European business – research institutes and industrial partners to focus on the challenges of managing emergent technologies, with an emphasis on the growth of open innovation ecosystems.

Throughout a four year project, the emphasis has been on developing economic impact by targeting industry-relevant questions. ManETEI’s report highlights 5 cases inspired by important questions emerging from the Bayer Industry Event, which brought together early and experienced researchers, academics and industry practitioners to analyse and discuss the topic of open innovation from an industry perspective.

The report provides some insight into:

  • How do companies interact with external people and organisations (government, universities, and other companies) to innovate?
  • How do companies keep track of and integrate emerging technologies into existing business units/groups?
  • What are the models and best practices for open innovation systems?
  • What are the benefits and challenges of having an open innovation system within a company?
