... Since innovation is driven by people throughout multiple interactions among the helix spheres (Kanter 1984), the distinct research approach on initiating collaboration through interaction on a micro-level of RIS follows the notion that RIS are socially embedded through personal relations and networks (Doloreux 2002). The approach of regionally embedded or local open innovation adds to the discussion on inter-organisational networking and has already proven successful for regional networks to facilitate collaboration for innovation (Leckel et al. 2017). However, we still perceive a lack of clarity about the exact mechanisms that within interaction process foster the formation of a collaborative attitude between different actors of the RIS. ...
... This process is called innovation brokering and might also contribute to strengthen regional innovation approaches through realising increased collaboration activity and forming a strong network (Svare and Gausdal 2015). The approach of local open innovation uses open-innovation ideas for application within the field of regional innovation management by adding to the discussion on inter-organisational networking and has already proven successful for regional networks to facilitate collaboration for innovation (Leckel et al. 2017). Measures with network building purposes, contributing to RIS are systemised as "network-building innovation brokering" (NBIB) and may be conceived as a family of methods, along with, e.g. ...
... The second step "problem selection" comprises the important task of filtering and validating submitted problems according to the question whether they really could benefit from the approach. Additionally, an expert from the submitting organisation is named as so-called ambassador who is responsible for defining the problem appropriately clear and broad (Deutsch 2013 During the third step solution seekers (recipients) ought to find the most suitable solution instead of relying on information and methods from a disciplinary limited area (Leckel et al. 2017). The aim here is to broadcast the submitted problems to a wide and diverse range of problem solvers without any constraints. ...
Conference Paper
Although related innovation processes are dependent on the interaction of various actors within the quadruple helix, our understanding of how collaboration among helix partners can be initiated and enhanced is still limited. The approach of regionally embedded or local open innovation adds to the discussion on inter-organisational networking and has already proven successful for regional networks to facilitate collaboration for innovation. This study is about further examining the transfer instrument local open innovation workshop (LOIW) with regard to its role and potential as a tool for regional innovation management (RIM). We integrate LOIW into recent concepts in literature and organised a LOIW with 20 participants from academia and regional chemical and pharmaceutical industry. We use semi-structured in-depth expert interviews to obtain insights into participants' perception of LOIW as stimulus for university industry collaboration (UIC). We find LOIW to offer the opportunity to build mutual trust between actors from different areas of regional innovation systems (RIS) and thus to lay the foundations for possible future collaboration. Specifically, we emphasise the role of building affective trust during the LOIW as most important to initiate UIC. We thereby underline its suitability as instrument for RIM which can be applied by various actors.
