From idea to market

Open Innovation is a paradigm that assumes that companies can and should use ideas from within the company as well as from outside and rely on internal and external pathways to the market when advancing their technologies. Open Innovation combines internal and external ideas to architectures and systems whose requirements are defined by a business model.

Open Innovation Platform

Allowing everyone to be more open and innovative

Developed in collaboration from acib and the Government of Lower Austria, it is operated as a physical Open Innovation Office to bring biotechnological research and business ideas together. Companies and start-up businesses are connected with local researchers to develop joint projects. The open innovation platform combines an approach to citizen science with coordinated idea development, helping with organizational matters, funding, networking and providing information for starting a own business.
