OISPG is launching the OI24U Community
6 - 8 November 2013
The Open Innovation Group stands behind the understanding that every idea has a potential. OISPG invites people to share their own inventivity and be spontaneously creative. 
We - The Open Innovation Strategy and Policy Group (OISPG) - began the development of the OI24U Community because we want to engage people in discussions on varied topics on Open Innovation. They can be related to European research and/or innovation actions. The scale of the discussions can range from European to regional. 

During the ICT2013 Conference, OISPG will be advocating the need for Europe to move forward into a more holistic approach where the ideas that matter are being experimented and prototyped in a real world setting. 7th November, Booth 11, 16:00 - 17:30

ICT2013 Conference will also be the place where the Group will present its first major online project – The OI24U Community. The online space 'Open Innovation 2.0 for You' is the result of putting together the outcome of various reports, articles and expert opinions. They all confirm that innovative ideas are mostly 'screen-based', but only few are shaped in the real world setting. The OI24U Community is an online idea-sharing space where everyone is invited to share any whim, creative impulse, idea or a whole project with the aim to make it happen and to put it forward in a win-win environment. 

OI24U platform gathers together people who are active and respond to the Horizon 2020 calls and are willing to use OI2 methodology in their approach. This is a forum related to Horizon 2020 actions where open innovation has space to be brought forward in projects.

OI24U Community is an interactive platform for creative people in which they can share examples and best practices, reflect approaches jointly and combine ideas on actions and needs.
