AUEB and i-MBA host the Open Innovation Network (OI-Net) project full partnership meeting on September 23-25. OI-Net develops learning material for OI teaching based on a pan-European survey of firm innovation needs. Open Innovation, defined by Henry Chesbrough of Berkeley as a distributed innovation process based on purposively managed knowledge flows across organizational boundaries, has transformed the landscape of innovation over the last decade to become more collaborative and networked.
