Open innovation in development: Integrating theory and practice across open science, open access, and open data


Jeremy de Beer - July 26, 2017 - 0 comments

Authored by Jeremy de Beer, this article integrates the concepts of open innovation and open development. It extends the theory of open development beyond the field of information communications technology to address aspects of innovation systems more generally. It applies the concept of openness to innovation in practice across the domains of open science, open education, and open data. Creating a framework that is more integrated in theory and cross-cutting in practice creates new possibilities for interdisciplinary research and policy-relevant insights.
