Description of the event

**Mine.Your.Our success in innovation** Open Innovation is one of the major trends in the innovation sector. The openness of companies for knowledge and creativity from outside of the company – from customers, partners, scientists, the staff or even the “crowd” – is one of the main factors of successful and effective innovation in the 21st century. A lot of global players integrated Open Innovation in their innovation process already. Especially for the medium-sized enterprises there is a huge necessity to gain more knowledge on how to integrate Open Innovation in their structures.

The main focus of the “Open Innovation Congress Baden-Württemberg 2018 - Mine.Your. Our Success In Innovation”, will be on political strategies to support Open Innovation, best practices, the role of new tools like makerspaces or pop-up laboratories and new chances by technical development. A field of tension between trust and intellectual property will play a substantial role in the Open Innovation processes. Economic minister Dr. Hoffmeister-Kraut MdL will give the opening speech, followed by Robert-Jan Smits, the director-general the EU-Commission. Look forward to experience reports by the region Noord-Braband, who has a strong connection to Baden-Württemberg via the Vanguard Initiative. Dr. Ingmar Hoerr, CEO of the CureVac AG, will take a closer look at open innovation from a Unicorn’s point of view.

The audience will be able to participate actively in the congress and experience Open Innovation live. Be part of the Open Innovation Congress 2018 and register now. The congress will be in German language.
