Innovation projects can be done in-house, but more often they are done in open innovation settings, with partners and technologies from outside your organisation.
Do you have the required knowledge, network and manpower to set up these projects? Which partners do you have to involve in innovation projects to reach success?
PNO is working in innovative businesses throughout Europe and can use its network and the Innovation Place© tool to help you find the right partners.
A good example of this type of innovation service PNO can offer, is the LightJumps project.
