Open Innovation Environments and their Importance in Materials Modelling and Materials Characterisation

Together with partners from the European H2020 OYSTER Open Innovation Environment (OIE) project, we put together a White Paper with some historical context to the development of Open Innovation and make the case that OIE and similar platform technologies are key enablers of open innovation in complex research fields such as materials science. They provide possibilities for participating in a wider Innovation Network Ecosystem involving all stakeholders from citizen to corporation. Thanks to Cambridge Nanomaterials Technology for their contribution.
