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.
