Open Innovation

 

"Useful knowledge today is widely distributed, and no company, no matter how capable or how big, could innovate effectively on its own

Henry Chesbrough         

INCREDIBLE facilitates open innovation by:

  • establishing and operating iNets for NWFPs, bringing together relevant actors with complementary knowledge, expertise and experiences in order to create innovation ecosystems for NWFPs;
  • identifying challenges and innovation needs within each iNet, and exploring ways to address them, building on the competences and contributions of all actors within the iNet ecosystem.
  • offering Open Innovation Challenges and Research-into-Action summary awards  to engage broader participation for social, technological and silvicultural innovations.

 

To find out more about how we understand open innovation, here are two interesting links with definitions from Henry Chesbrough, the person who originated the “open innovation” concept:
