ERA logoIn the last decade, the development of the European Research Area has been based on the concepts of Open Science, Open Innovation, and Openness to the World. The basic strategy of Open Innovation is the Open Innovation 2.0 paradigm, introduced by the Dublin Declaration in 2013 as a new innovation model that proclaims a shift from a cluster model to an open innovation ecosystem.

The Open Innovation 2.0 paradigm is based on a quadruple-helix innovation model (Quadruple Helix), where government, business, science and citizens work together to provide the future and make structural changes far beyond what an organization or individual can do alone. This model includes user-oriented innovation models to take full advantage of the “cross-pollination” ideas, which can lead to conducting experiments and making prototypes in the real economy.

Open Innovation 2.0 is based on the principles of integrated collaboration, shared value creation, cultivation of innovative ecosystems, development and use of exponential technologies and extremely rapid adoption of innovations. Open Innovation 2.0 is developing due to global trends such as digitalization, mass participation and collaboration in the field of innovations. Information technologies play a special role to ensure the unity and capacity of social network among the innovators and communities they serve.

Introducing the elements of the Open Innovation 2.0 paradigm in Ukraine is a very important task for Ukraine's integration into the European Innovation Area. That is why the employees of the Innovation Center are taking part in the Europe 2.0 International Research Project on innovation projects research in industry, conducting jointly by the universities of Brazil and some European countries: Austria, Denmark, Finland, Italy, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and Ukraine. In Italy, this project is being implemented by Carlo Cattaneo University (LIUC) and well-known University of Pisa. In the framework of the project, it is conducted a survey to explore open innovation approaches in the European industry. For research purposes, open innovation is defined as any collaboration and exchange of knowledge between companies and external partners (e.g. universities, customers and suppliers, competitors, etc.) within innovation projects.

Survey’s target audience - CEOs or directors of Research & Development enterprises and research institutes. In order to thank the audience for participating in the survey, we will provide all participants with a report of the final findings of the research.

Expected research results: The research results will enable scientists to better understand the innovation climate in Europe and Ukraine as a part of it. In particular, it will be possible to talk more about the main reasons for agreeing on or rejecting joint innovation projects (for example, in relations between enterprise-university, client-enterprise, etc.) and to better understand the mechanisms for managing joint innovation projects, as well as to what extent this affects the effectiveness of project implementation in specific market conditions.
