Open Innovation Eco-systems
This plenary session will focus on the role of the university or research institute and its KTO / TTO within the local eco-system. By using different best practices from universities, and their strategic partners, we will discuss the rationale behind these relationships: what it takes to get there; the do’s and don’ts when it comes to building and maintaining a role in the regional Open Innovation eco-system.
Within the session, we shall discuss and examine building strategic collaborations, co-creation and open innovation partnerships, strategic consortia, physical and virtual campuses; setting up, financing and exploiting shared facilities.
