After the great success of the first edition, the Open Innovation Forum is back. This program gives companies the chance to share their innovation challenges and get proposals from research groups and centers to solve them.

The Open Innovation Forum is a great opportunity to meet the right collaborator to tackle your innovation challenges. Throughout 2019, there will be several gatherings bringing together the innovation challenge-generators and problem-solvers, with a schedule of pre-arranged interviews so companies can cut development time for the products and services they need to boost their competitiveness. The online platform will be open throughout 2019, and with the single payment of an annual fee, innovation challenges or solutions can be submitted all year long. A committee will assess these challenges and choose the most relevant ones, which will get feedback on possible solutions from Catalan innovation stakeholders and university research centers. They will also be invited to the gatherings with the problem-solvers. 

 FIRST MEETING: 

The first meeting will take place on April 3, 2019 at Caixaforum Barcelona. Once you sign up for the Open Innovation forum platform, you can choose to participate in this meeting and request B2B meetings with other participants.

The forum is open to any company with innovation needs, developing new products or services, or interested in exploring new innovation opportunities; and to university research groups and technology centers interested in applying their research in the Catalan business arena.
