Open Innovation

Organisations’ willingness to open up to participation by external agents and sources of knowledge has been one of the most important trends in management and greater competitiveness in the last decade.
Open Innovation creates value added for society by promoting the development of processes, products and services for the sake of common causes and goods.

“Open innovation is the use of purposive inflows and outflows of knowledge to accelerate internal innovation and expand the markets for external use of innovation”

“A inovação aberta consiste em integrar a inovação por parte de agentes externos à organização com vista a acelerar a sua inovação e expandir o seu uso no mercado”.
