IPI Open Innovation Workshop
IPI Open Innovation Workshop is engaging interactive educational
In today's complex and competitive business world, companies that do not innovate risk being obsolete and irrelevant. Instead of relying entirely on internal ideas, open innovation means that companies should make much greater use of external ideas and technologies in their own businesses, while allowing their unused ideas to be used by others.
The workshop on Open Innovation offers innovation/R&D managers in corporates, SMEs or government agencies insights into how open innovation can work for their organisations, and give them access to tools and platforms offered by IPI to accelerate their innovation journeys through collaboration.
This is a hands-on workshop. Please bring along your internet-accessible laptops for both days as practical assignments will be carried out during the sessions. Wifi access will be available.
