Open Scholarship Cafe: Open Innovation (24 June 2020)
From Hardy Schwamm on June 24th, 2020
Openness (e.g. Open Innovation, Open Education, Open Strategy) is an important and powerful concept, especially in combination with IT. Key ‘‘open’’ aspects – such as resource access and process participation – can be increased or enacted in entirely new ways through IT.
Openness has permeated society. Someone may well read this (open access) editorial on an Android (open source) tablet while looking up entries on Wikipedia (open content) while sitting in a shared ride (sharing economy). Hence, the importance of openness cannot be overstated.
