The Open Innovation in the European Union (EU) environment

Everyone is being affected by this change from SMEs to Government organizations, but it seems that Europe has not changed enough.

R. Hudson says it takes:

– Focus on Excellence. If Europe wants to compete has to have the best research and ideas available.

– Focus on clusters. We need to focus resources on areas of high technology in order to attract bright students to its universities and companies for their rich business parks .

– Free SMEs. Small businesses are a major driver of ideas to the markets. We must encourage them financially.

– Buy smart. We need to provide the public services with the ability to purchase innovative products and services.

– Regulate smart. The setting is a sign of obligation and can lead to innovation.

Since 2009 it became clear that:

– It is essential to invest in new skills (people) and not only in technology (tools).

– The environmental concern is no longer exclusively green to be too gray and white in reference to creative thinking.

– “The new thinking” can be provided (with help), as is the case presented by Hudson, in terms of policies and regulations.

– The interdisciplinary team (economists, engineers, psychologists, designers, etc.) have guaranteed future. Everyone can create, conceptualize and implement ideas.

Contagious or by the law!

In November 2009 an EU Manifesto targeted focus on funding and the competences and could read:

“The ambassadors believe that a comprehensive innovation policy , along with increased investment in science, technology and design, will help make Europe more competitive . “

At that time Jean -Philippe Courtois, President Microsoft International, said that the future of Europe depends on the imagination of its people and urged political and business leaders to create a environment that encourages creative thinking.

He said that the technology has the potential to radically transform society and create new jobs, but investment in skills is essential.

“The acquisition of IT skills, for example, is as fundamental as reading and writing, “said Courtois, who spoke on behalf of the 27 ambassadors.” Leer más “The Open Innovation in the European Union (EU) environment”

Open Innovation – The relationship between competence and motivation

When we talk about Open Innovation we talk about outside innovators that often are busy focusing on their own economic interests, which often results in fierce competition and little cooperation among them.

Companies that wish use external ideas , apart from knowing what kind of innovation is at stake and what the business model to follow, naturally have a concern whether, who provides these ideas is the possessor of certain skills.

Of course, one of those powers is the technical training, like that which is normally required for R & D. This is necessary to facilitate the communication processes and provide flexibility for innovation teams. There is a common language that is important and a necessary basis of trust.

For example, one of the major difficulties that arise in open innovation, when establishing protocols with universities is the ability to match the look of the business to the academic perspective.

Motivations and skills on Open Innovation.

When we talk about Open Innovation, we spoke of the “intentional use of inflows and outflows of knowledge to accelerate internal innovation and expanding markets for external use of innovation, respectively. [This paradigm] assumes that firms can and should use external ideas as well as internal ideas, and internal and external paths to market, as they look to advance their technology. ” – Henry Chesbrough
