Your organization cannot solve every challenge on its own. Value chain overarching challenges call for new and innovative solutions. The complexity and scope of these challenges often exceeds the capacity of single organizations to create effective solutions. This shows the need for a collaborative approach to innovation beyond organizational borders.
Innovation ecosystems and living labs can provide a cohesive structure to foster such a collaborative approach. Via an innovation ecosystem partners can co-create ideas, whereas living labs provide a physical space to test and develop the solutions further.
To embark on effective innovative co-creation, it is essential to answer two questions: who can be a valuable partner and what are the challenges to solve together? Our publication “Innovation through collaboration” provides insights on how to act upon your answers and set up successful innovation ecosystems and living labs. We also present ways to overcome pressing challenges like aligning objectives and realizing added value for all parties involved.
