Open Innovation, in its broadest sense, refers to the inflow and/ or outflow of ideas beyond an organisation’s boundaries. There is no universally accepted definition of the term, and it is thus understood and used in a wide variety of ways by different stakeholders. This implies that diverse IP models may be employed while practising open innovation, and there may be substantial differences in ownership and rights accruing from the process.
In this project, we seek to explore the different IP models through which firms practise open innovation. We will be following the case study methodology for this purpose.
