Open innovation: status quo and quo vadis
January 20, 2023 @ 12:00 - 13:30
Open innovation is now a widely used concept in academia, industry, and policy-
making. This innovation paradigm has emerged as a result of the gradual shifting
process from closed to open innovation models, based on the voluntary inflows and
outflows of knowledge across organizational boundaries. The social and economic
changes imposed by the emerging processes of transition towards a more digital and
sustainable society raise questions on how the open innovation field of studies is
evolving to meet new, emerging needs. By combining bibliometric techniques and
content analysis, the study illustrates how this research community has evolved in the last 12 years. More specifically, this study provides a descriptive analysis of the literature
on open innovation, defines its knowledge structure, and illustrates a representative
picture of the theoretical landscape. Our analysis shows that attempts to further
consolidate established topics and theoretical approaches in this field of studies go
hand in hand with the emergence of new conversations about unexplored dimensions
of open innovation.
