Open Innovation

The possibilities that external ideas may bring to a company’s innovation process mean that more and more open innovation initiatives are promoted. Throughout 2017 Beaz has taken part in several activities that have had in common the collaboration between organisations of different sectors, size, maturity and origin. We are facing a relationship-based innovation, in which the key aspect to move forward safely and quickly and to make good progresses is the willingness to be a part of the project, and not the whole.
