The Open-UNIC research project advances research on open innovation as a new
source of value creation in the collaboration between Finnish universities and
enterprises. The study focuses on the role of universities as utilisers of
unused intangible assets of firms – patents and ideas – in organized and
managed research and student projects.
Research work consists of
a survey that presents the status quo of current activities,
project-level case studies, and
policy workshops that assure relevance of research.
As a result, a Finnish handbook of open innovation is prepared for
practitioners and policy guidance.
