Open Innovation in the 4th INNO-Grips Newsletter

In the 4th INNO-Grips Newsletter readers can find an article on Open Innovation written by Olivér Kovács who emphasised that the focus of businesses has increasingly tended to be placed on external knowledge resources which poses the question of trust among firms cooperating with each other. The Newsletter contains other articles on social attitudes to innovation and entrepreneurship; on innovations in the public sector under the aegis of European Economic Governance; on the issue of disruptive innovation and its implications for Europe’s competitiveness; on the importance of demand side approaches in sparking innovation; on recent trends in regional innovation policy as well as international innovation policy. Besides the introduction of new INNO-Grips studies and forthcoming workshops, this issue also provides international innovation policy news from countries worldwide.
