Industry Commons

Open Innovation Methodology, Toolkit and Ecosystem

Introduction

The Industry Commons is an open innovation methodology, toolkit and ecosystem. It changes the way that innovation is managed in order to combine and leverage existing industry capabilities, create new market niches, and foster robust creative startups that build new transversal technologies to address grand challenges.

The Industry Commons fosters innovation and creates new categories of knowledge by matching technologies, competencies and creativity, contributing to the breakdown of industry silos and the creation of new markets, new types of jobs, and sustainable and systemic growth. It fosters a culture of openness and creativity in the use of modular technology components and enabling technologies across different industry verticals. The Industry Commons bolts disruptive innovation safely on top of existing industry capabilities supported by unambiguous layers of Intellectual Property, in order to ensure full transparency and accountability.

The methodology provides organisations the opportunity for their technologies to be applied in unexpected manners and contexts, integrated as core components of novel products and services, thereby opening new and unanticipated markets. It provides creative innovators and SMEs a range of previously inaccessible technologies and tools with which to envision new creative solutions for innovative products and services that might not otherwise have been possible. It incentivises the most innovative and visionary minds to develop their own layer of IP on top of industry capabilities.
