PITCCH project was funded by the European Commission program INNOSUP under GA ID: 882463 and implemented under the coordination of the International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory with four consortium partners Rina Consulting SpA, Steinbeis Europa Zentrum, TNO Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research and Avitaminados Lda, that had the goal of creating a network for open innovation across Europe. The PITCCH Open Innovation platform was used to facilitate collaborations between large corporations and SMEs or start-ups, with the help of the PITCCH consortium and technology centres.
Starting during worldwide tough times determined by the pandemic and geopolitical crisis, it left behind the rocky road and crafted a safe and synergic space to promote collaborations among companies at full speed. The consortium has gathered all the knowledge, findings, and recommendations built over the three years of the project’s implementation into a digital booklet available for download.
In the booklet, you can find relevant information about the project, including an introduction to the project and its platform; a portfolio of brokerage services; lessons learned on preparing a challenge; proposed challenges and their conclusions; case studies of successful collaborations; the most effective business and collaboration model; and insights on how to manage intellectual property in open innovation.
This unique booklet not only serves as an excellent resource for anyone interested in open innovation, but it further provides a sneak peek into the future of the PITCCH network. More details about the document can be found here and you can download the booklet here.
