Open Innovation in SMEs - The Power of Cooperation
Open Innovation meets medium-sized businesses! Together with the Chamber of Industry and Commerce Ostwestfalen zu Bielefeld (IHK), we invite medium-sized companies to get to know the principle of Open Innovation on February 2, 2023, and to develop initial ideas for its concrete application in the process.
Industry challenge: How are our companies changing?
Industrial companies are increasingly asking themselves how they need to adapt their business models in order to adapt to developments in the industrial economy. But how can they counter this dynamic? With the now published "Trend Book Innovation - Open Industry", Open Innovation City shows how cities and industrial companies are changing and how the transformation to new business models can succeed.
Mastermind-Podcast Episode #40 with Nicole Ebber

Open Innovation City is a completely new initiative. All areas of a city work together to shape its future: Politics and administration, industry and start-ups, education and research, art and culture as well as citizen engagement – open, transparent and collaborative. Open Innovation City is based on the assumption that innovations can come about not only in the economy, but everywhere and through all areas of a company. When innovative ideas and motivated stakeholders come together, it is possible to do things that would never usually happen in a city. Bielefeld wants to be a pioneer as the first Open Innovation City.
With a future-oriented culture of openness, international innovation and exchange formats – that’s how Bielefield will become a dynamic city of innovation!
The Innovation Office will be the launching pad for innovative initiatives in the city of Bielefeld. Here, future-oriented ideas are developed and tested out – practical and uncomplicated.
