Full-text available
Many early-career researchers are motivated by the prospect of creating knowledge that is useful, not just within but also beyond the academic community. Although research facilities, funders and academic journals praise this eagerness for societal impact, the path towards such contributions is by no means straightforward. In this article, we addre...
Article
Full-text available
Over the last few decades, two domains have undergone seemingly similar transformations: Closed innovation turned into open innovation, closed science into open science. In this essay we engage critically with recent calls for a close coupling of the two domains based on their apparent commonality: openness. Comparing the historically-specific ways...
Article
Full-text available
The present study explores the phenomenon of remixing in product design for additive manufacturing (AM). In contrast to other manufacturing techniques, AM offers unprecedented flexibility in adapting existing product designs to changing requirements. However, in order to benefit from this potential, structured design procedures and tools are indisp...

Full-text available
Handelte es sich bei dem Beitrag des Präsidenten der Freien Universität Berlin Günther M. Ziegler “Die Bedeutung der Verlage wandelt sich” wieder nur um ein “Loblied auf “Open Access" als Zukunft des wissenschaftlichen Publizierens”? Diesen Vorwurf jedenfalls machte Wolfgang Sander dem Präsidenten in seinem kurzen Kommentar vom 12. Juni 2019. Doch...
Article
Full-text available
The reuse of existing knowledge is an indispensable part of the creation of novel ideas. In the creative domain knowledge reuse is a common practice known as ‘‘remixing’’. With the emergence of open internet-based platforms in recent years, remixing has found its way from the world of music and art to the design of arbitrary physical goods. However...
Article
Full-text available
It is widely acknowledged that data sharing has great potential for scientific progress. However, so far making data available has little impact on a researcher’s reputation. Thus, data sharing can be conceptualized as a social dilemma. In the presented study we investigated the influence of the researcher's personality within the social dilemma of...
Article
Full-text available
Open access to research data has been described as a driver of innovation and a potential cure for the reproducibility crisis in many academic fields. Against this backdrop, policy makers are increasingly advocating for making research data and supporting material openly available online. Despite its potential to further scientific progress, widesp...
Chapter
Crowdsourcing, die Idee Aufgaben über das Internet an eine Gruppe von Menschen „auszusourcen“, ist als Konzept seit zehn Jahren bekannt. In diesem Kapitel wird besprochen, was genau sich hinter dem Begriff verbirgt und welche unterschiedlichen Formen von Crowdsourcing man unterscheiden kann (intermediäre Plattformen, freie Lösungen, unternehmenseig...
Article
Full-text available
Crowd science is scientific research that is conducted with the participation of volunteers who are not professional scientists. Thanks to the Internet and online platforms, project initiators can draw on a potentially large number of volunteers. This crowd can be involved to support data-rich or labour-intensive projects that would otherwise be un...
Article
In recent years, a movement has emerged, which assembles itself under the umbrella term “Open Science”. Its intent is to make academic research more transparent, collaborative, accessible, and efficient. In the present article, we examine the origins, various forms, and understandings of this movement. Furthermore, we put the aims of individual gro...

Full-text available
Wir alle tragen den Kreativcode in uns, doch wir lassen unsere Kreativität zu oft verkommen. Im Laufe unserer Kindheit, unserer Jugend und auch noch im Erwachsenenalter wird sie durch die unterschiedlichsten Zwänge unterdrückt, bis sie vollkommen verschwunden ist. Doch wer nicht versucht, kreativ zu sein und neue Problemlösungen zu entwickeln, läuf...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The conjecture that all innovations are radical new ideas is flawed. In fact, for the most part innovations are recombinations of existing concepts, that is, so-called ‘remixes’. However, creators, inventors, artists, and companies are usually reluctant to disclose their sources of inspiration for fear of possible copyright infringements. As a cons...
Article
Full-text available
Despite widespread support from policy makers, funding agencies, and scientific journals, academic researchers rarely make their research data available to others. At the same time, data sharing in research is attributed a vast potential for scientific progress. It allows the reproducibility of study results and the reuse of old data for new resear...
Article
Full-text available
Academic data sharing is a way for researchers to collaborate and thereby meet the needs of an increasingly complex research landscape. It enables researchers to verify results and to pursuit new research questions with “old” data. It is therefore not surprising that data sharing is advocated by funding agencies, journals, and researchers alike. We...
Chapter
Full-text available
Licences are a topic many researchers shy away from. And it is common behavior that property rights are unknowingly signed away. In this little section we would like to present the different creative commons licences one is oftentimes confronted with. This book for instance is published under a creative commons license. They are widely used and esp...
Article
Full-text available
The shift towards open innovation has substantially changed the academic and practical understanding of corporate innovation. While academic studies on open innovation are burgeoning, most research on the topic focuses on the later phases of the innovation process. So far, the impact and implications of the general tendency towards more openness in...
Article
Full-text available
Digital technologies carry the promise of transforming science and opening up the research process. We interviewed researchers from a variety of backgrounds about their attitudes towards and experiences with openness in their research practices. We observe a considerable discrepancy between the concept of open science and scholarly reality. While m...
Chapter
Crowdsourcing – a neologism created from the words ‘crowd’ and ‘outsourcing’ – describes giving tasks to the crowd for completion. The use cases for crowdsourcing are diverse, and new ideas are constantly emerging on the internet, making it all the more important for companies to engage with the topic and to learn how to use it effectively. Various...
Chapter
Creativity describes the ability to rethink existing solutions, to combine existing ones with solutions used in other fields, or to imagine a new way of doing things, and as such, creativity represents the basis of innovation. But in many companies the thinking prevails that not every employee is able to be imaginative and to create something new....
Chapter
Google Ventures – the venture capital department of Google – couples the idea of a corporate incubator with the methods of a classical venture capital firm. A corporate incubator strives to create innovation, whereas a venture capital firm’s idea is to create money. As such, corporate incubators fill their front end with new ideas and innovative bu...
Article
The present article provides an overview of the research on motivation for online co-creation. Motivating participants to contribute in online co-creation endeavours is one of the key challenges in online co-creation. Due to this, an array of scholars has faced this question using a variety of research designs. We found that the multitude of mo...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
Open Science is an umbrella term that encompasses a multitude of assumptions about the future of knowledge creation and dissemination. Based on a literature review, this paper aims at structuring the overall discourse by proposing five Open Science schools of thought: The infrastructure school (which is concerned with the technological architecture...
Chapter
Many western firms have to find an answer to the massive and aggressive Chinese growth. In the past it has been relatively easy: China was a destination for low cost manufacturing and a market for low cost products. Today this is different: China has become very competitive in many technological areas. And as such more and more transnational compan...
Chapter
In many firms, the IP management is an isolated unit with little contact with the daily business. Yet, the management of IP protection, the identification of piracy and the application of countermeasures require the involvement of many roles within the organization. Since IP departments are often organized as central units in a firm and are respons...
Chapter
The protection means, technology, human, market and business are vital to embrace the dynamics of IP threats in China. The piracy intelligence and identification of IP infringements is challenging. Due to the dominant view that IP professionals autonomously man-age IP activities, the traditional IP protection is mainly characterized by the applicat...
Chapter
The protection of proprietary IP in China remains a challenging task. It will require several more years and a revolutionary rethink before China develops into a strong appropriability regime. The increasing number of patent applications in China by domes-tic firms underlines the importance of IP generation by local firms to protect their innovatio...
Chapter
Globally, three quarters of all imitations originate from China. Within the past 10 years the scale of intellectual property theft has risen exponentially in terms of its sophistication, its volume, the range of goods, and the countries affected. In this context, the protection of intellectual property and their associated rights remains a challeng...
Chapter
Firms need a holistic piracy intelligence and IP protection to profit from innovation. They also need to develop strong brands and to manage technology-intensive processes in China. The different facets of legal and factual protection means need an overall perspective of directly or indirectly protecting IP. The IP protection star addresses five d...
Chapter
The application of intellectual property protection means depends on the type and the characteristics of a threat. Common intellectual property threats in China concern legal infringements such as patent, trademark, design or copyright infringements. Yet intellectual property rights infringements are only part of the IP threat environment in China....
Article
Foreign firms patent in emerging economies with weak appropriability regimes at an increasing rate. This phenomenon constitutes a paradox since in such a setting foreign firms should have weak incentives to patent. In an attempt to resolve this paradox, we conducted an inductive analysis of 11 foreign firms that patent in such a setting, using the...

China is dramatically catching up and is rapidly becoming a leading technological innovator on the global scale. The number of Chinese firms with global ambitions is growing fast, more and more technological innovation is coming from China, and the number of patents in China is also growing steadily. The negative side of this development is the sti...
Chapter
Little is known about how small internationalized firms (‘born globals’) protect and appropriate rents from their intellectual property (IP). Moreover, conflicting predictions exist as to how this protection should be implemented. Therefore, in this book chapter we analyse the strategies born global firms use to protect their IP. We believe that su...
Article
The shift towards open innovation has substantially changed the scientific and practical perception of corporate innovation. While scientific studies on open innovation are burgeoning, present research underlies a business-centric view that has focused on the back-end of the innovation process. The impact and implications of open innovation on acad...
Article
The term business model became popular with the rise of the Internet and electronic businesses as a means to explain how an organization works. With innovations also the way how customers interact with firms and thus with their products has changed, leading to a world, where companies compete on the basis of their business models. This is also refl...
