Open innovation is an approach to innovation that has steadily started to gain ground during the last few years, as a practice that can help companies to remain innovative.This practice allows ideas to move freely inside out and outside in of a company. This means that a company can use external ideas to enhance its internal R&D and it can also utilize internal ideas in new innovative ways. As a result developing costs are reduced, products reach the market faster and new perspectives for future growth are created.
