The determinants of successful innovation activities are constantly changing induced by a growing technological complexity, by increasing dynamics of scientific and technological opportunities and by the increasing differentiation of customer needs. The internal orientation of knowledge generation and application is challenged by an increasingly open innovation process. Companies systematically enlarge the opportunity space for successful innovation by integrating external partners into the corporate innovation process, by continuously searching for new ideas and technologies outside the boundaries of the firm and by externally exploiting developed technologies. The systematic integration of the external environment is a strong determinant for successful innovation.

 

Open Innovation in Europe (2010-2012)

Open Innovation in Europe as a part of the EU Commission’s Inno-Grips II framework develops a set of indicators to investigate open innovation practices among European enterprises. It identifies determinants for and effects of these practices. In combination with a comprehensive policy analysis suggestions for European innovation policy are developed.
Funding: European Commission DG Enterprise and Industry
Partners: Fraunhofer ISI, Karlsruhe; NIFU, Oslo

 

Open Innovation and Globalization (2007-2008)

    abstract = {It is commonly argued that we are witnessing a shift from global production networks, driven by the search for markets and lower cost production sites, to global innovation networks (GINs), driven by the search for knowledge. This paper explores how sources of behavioural differentiation derived from the literature on industrial knowledge bases and technological regimes condition the degree of involvement in international innovation collaboration. We find this to be significantly influenced by the nature of knowledge and the cumulativeness of knowledge development, the active use of measures to protect intellectual property, the inherent need to innovate and the opportunity to generate sales from this activity. The likelihood that the firm establishes and maintains a truly global network configuration is influenced accordingly. {\textcopyright} 2013 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.},

    abstract = {This paper investigates how resources available in urban agglomerations influence the organizational form, innovation activity and collaborative linkages of knowledge intensive business services firms (KIBS). Compared to their counterparts elsewhere, KIBS located in Norwegian large-city labour market regions are more likely to be independent from multi-establishment business organizations and thus reliant on resources available externally, in their locations. This is most pronounced in the central and western business districts of the capital, wherein independent KIBS exhibit high turnover of professionals and are less inclined to engage actively in innovation. Yet, those that do engage use the capital region economy as a platform for engaging with both domestic and international collaboration partners. Only by consecutively analysing these aspects and accounting for the selection processes involved is the empirical analysis able to uncover contrasting firm-level responses to the same urban economy resource base.},
