Is innovation of profitable new products and services too often a challenge for your company?

Does the idea of outside expert collaboration interest you, but you are unsure of what it means and how to access the experts?

If you answered YES to any or all of these questions, then the Pennsylvania Network for Open Innovation and PA IRC Network may be just the resource you are seeking.

And, if you answered NO to these questions, then you might be in serious and dangerous denial.

Research and development can slow down or stop the best ideas from eventually moving forward. Open Innovation – when embraced by the business – is transforming the way manufacturers create and commercialize new products. It’s about expanding the source(s) of ideas to address the needs in a business and thereby accelerating business growth.

Open Innovation leverages the idea that when internal and external ideas are combined, it creates the spark of innovation that was previously unattainable. The need for incorporating Open Innovation into traditional innovation and product/service development initiatives is being driven by the rapid pace of change in emerging technologies and markets.
