Overview
Since Open Innovation is of utmost importance for European competitiveness, yet, without proper university education on OI, WP5 focuses on education and training in Europe by consolidating Common Curricula Framework (CCF), providing the up-to-date methodology of teaching and pedagogical approach, establishing the collaborative network of European partners and continuous system of feedback on the curricula on OI.
Thanks to high level of commitment and collaborative contributions by OI-Net members, WP5 aims in creating a European course in open innovation: European CCF and its validation.
Practical issues like piloting of OI curricula in universities and guideline for implementation development are among the core objectives. In terms of collaborative methodology, WP 5 is based on outputs from WPs 2 to 4 and it works in parallel with WP4.

Objectives
The WP5 focuses on improving open innovation education and training in Europe by consolidating Common Curricula Framework, creating pedagogical guidelines, teaching materials. It will also identify competences and skills needed for open innovation teachers and trainers. The main aim is to validate and improve the pedagogical process and capitalize pilot results into transferability and adaptability guidelines for the other Higher Education Institutes. It will also consolidate global policy recommendations for open innovation education and HEI governance. The most important expected result consists in better-trained, more innovative graduates, ready to transfer their ideas for their own benefit as well as the benefit of the companies that they are working. They are able to work in open innovation ecosystem, ultimately, producing high added value for the society, in general. The efficiency of these actions depends on the established, cooperative and coordinated network of partners, with high level of commitment.
