Open Innovation 2.0


28 Apr 2014
Dublin Convention Centre, Ireland - June 12, 2014

Open Innovation 2.0 Conference

The European economy is showing its first promising signs of recovery. However an accelerated recovery can be achieved with a stronger Open Innovation 2.0 approach to boosting job creation, driving a better entrepreneurship environment and deliver innovations for global challenges. Based on the principles of shared vision and shared value, the OI2 approach creates a fair win-win situation for all stakeholders and creates entirely new market opportunities.

The European Commission / Open Innovation Strategy and Policy Group - OISPG, Intel Labs Europe, and Dublin City Council are jointly organising the Open Innovation 2.0 Conference on June 12 at the Dublin Convention Centre - a whole-day conference fully devoted to inspiring sessions and interaction on OI2 business models and ecosystems!

The OI2.0 conference is organised around the concept of short speeches, strong interaction and further development of the ideas, so that the outcome has an impact beyond the event. Leading innovation thought leaders will present their latest insights; European policy leaders will contribute to the design of the European Innovation ecosystems; and the first feedback from the new European research and innovation framework, Horizon 2020, will be presented.
