Open Innovation 2.0 Yearbook 2013

Open Innovation 2.0 - Yearbook 2013

We need to move from having 'perfect plans for yesterday' to an innovation culture which fosters experimentation and prototyp­ing in real-world settings.

This new innovation cul­ture leads to simultaneous technological and societal innovation and encouragement. We need to be daring and also experiment with disruptive approaches as gradual improvement does not properly reflect the potential that the omnipresent, fast-developing ICT provides for parallel innovations.
