EUA offered a webinar on open innovation and universities. The webinar featured examples from both the university and the private sectors, as well as the European Commission’s perspective on ensuring further uptake of this approach.

Thursday, 8 October 2020, 14:00-15:00 CEST

Open innovation presents a model for researchers, students and university leaders to engage in the co-creation of knowledge and solutions through being active and leading in their innovation ecosystems. With great potential to support Europe’s recovery and speed up the digital and green transition, open innovation can enable universities to play a truly systemic role in making societies more resilient. The webinar was an opportunity for EUA members and other interested participants to learn more about the potential of open innovation through existing initiatives and to ask questions directly.
