We are doing science for policy
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.
The workshop on "Open Innovation in ICT: Findings from 13 Case Studies" was prepared in the context of the three-year research project on European Innovation Policies for the Digital Shift (EURIPIDIS) jointly launched in 2013 by JRC-IPTS and DG CONNECT of the European Commission.
The study builds upon 13 case studies of innovative ICT and ICT-enabled European companies. These 13 case studies include four large companies and nine SMEs. The aim of the study is to assess the impact of Open Innovation strategies on companies’ innovation procedures and to highlight the role of ICT in Open Innovation processes.
