Enhancing open innovation: the creation of an open-innovation toolkit

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution to proceedingpeer-review


The aim of this paper is to explore and describe a methodology for collecting and reviewing tools and methods of open innovation that can be used to integrate and operationalize the involved stakeholders in processes of open innovation development. The authors originally realized this by applying a Quadruple Helix (QH) Model of innovation, which recognizes four major actors in the innovation system: science, policy, industry, and society, to the development of an Open Innovation Toolkit (OIT). Specifically, the actors were involved in the development or implementation of health and welfare technology aimed at older adults. The result of this paper is an outline of the methodology used for implementing the OIT, and involving QH actors in the process.
