Open Innovation in Science Research and Competence Center (Open Innovation in Science)


The OIS Center aims at generating insights into the potential of using of open innovation principles and methods in science, along the entire process of generating and disseminating new scientific research. The OIS Center’s understanding of Open Innovation in Science (OIS) builds on the widely distributed nature of innovation-relevant knowledge along contextually, geographically or functionally dispersed sources, and refers to enabling, initiating and purposively managing knowledge flows across organizational and domain-specific boundaries for generating novel research questions, designing and conducting research studies, disseminating research results and eventually translating new scientific knowledge into innovation. As such, it clearly goes beyond existing concepts of Open Access, Open Journals or Open Data and challenges established ways of conducting and disseminating science.
