Open Innovation and Collaboration at FEI EMEA 2013

Open Innovation and Collaboration at FEI EMEA 2013

On 4, 5 and 6 of March, Patrick Berry and myself enjoyed Front End of Innovation EMEA 2013, in Copenhaguen, where we were able to attend inspiring presentations. We also talked about Allfoodexperts, our community and Open Innovation platform for the agri-food and beverage industry, and one of my current projects.

Alfoodexperts is based on collaboration and the sum of talent. We heard about that also at the FEI EMEA 2013. Pierre Swart talked about co-creation and Heather Moore summarized some macro trends, including the movement towards the “WE” and the creation of a collective energy.

Global  collaboration projects at FEI EMEA 2013

One of the most talked about presentations at FEI EMEA 2013 was made by Kirsten Kuehl, Global Head of Community Innovation for Nokia (here is the link). She talked about Ideas Project, another project based on global collaboration.

The presentations “Sparking Strategic Innovation” by Christian Rangen and Elisabeth Ovstebo and “What Trend Will Disrupt Your Business” by Bob van Leeuwen were also interesting. You have the both of them on Slideshare and on the links above.
