Research on Open Innovation
“Open innovation” describes a new paradigm for the management
of industrial innovation in the 21st century, in which firms work with external
partners to both commercialize their internal innovations and to obtain a source
of external innovations that can be commercialized. The
term was coined by Henry Chesbrough, based on his research on the innovation practicles of large multinational companies.
