Research and Technology Organisations (RTOs) are crucial contributors to national innovation systems, as they provide highly innovative services to European economies and societies. However, very few empirical studies have investigated how RTOs actually develop their service innovations. Thus, this paper explores the new service development (NSD) p...

This paper aims to present a framework to guide managerial action for social media (SM) strategies for innovation by exploring its constituent elements – the “what” (SM types), the “who” (stakeholders to be reached), the “for” (innovation types) and the “how” (innovation process stages), as well as the value, benefits and barriers. SM type and use...

Research and Technology Organizations (RTOs) and universities are important elements of countries’ innovation systems. As they are both halfway between science and industry, they are often considered to be the same thing. However, recent studies have stressed the differences between the two. In this paper, we analyze the innovative characteristics...

Recent development of Internet-based digital technologies has revealed a huge potential of developing open, collaborative and network-centred Innovation. However firms face major challenges in using such new technologies for rapid prototyping, data-mining, simulation, visualization, etc. to support their Open Innovation strategies. Responding to the need for further conceptual and empirical research on technology-enhanced open innovation, this book reveals knowledge on how firms from different sectors have successfully implemented digital technologies for Open Innovation. Based on rich empirical data the book discusses the benefits and drawbacks, the processes, the characteristics and the management practices of ICT-driven Open Innovation in private as well as public organizations.
