Austria’s National Open Innovation Strategy
The bmvit website reported that Austria is one of the very first countries in the world to have developed a national Open Innovation Strategy. It was very important to promote collaboration between industry, science, public administration and society even while the strategy was being drawn up. In an open participatory process, interested parties from a wide range of areas were given the opportunity to actively shape the national Open Innovation Strategy. This strategy paper was the result of the work put in by countless actors from business, science, public administration and many interested members of the general public. They all critically considered ways of creating a culture of open innovation, forming innovation networks, strengthening public involvement in research programs, and questions of open access, fair compensation models for crowdwork and much more.
