Open Innovation Forum is a program that allows companies to share their innovation challenges and get proposals from research groups and centers. Therefore, it is a great opportunity to meet the right collaborator to tackle your innovation challenges. During the first meeting of the Open Innovation Forum 2019, on April 3 at CaixaForum Barcelona, 76 meetings took place between 130 companies and solvers.
How does it work?
The online platform will be open throughout 2019, and with the single payment of an annual fee, innovation challenges or solutions can be submitted all year long. A committee will assess these challenges and choose the most relevant ones, which will get feedback on possible solutions from Catalan innovation stakeholders and university research centers. They will also be invited to the gatherings with the problem-solvers.
