The INNO-lyze® project provides European Commission support for SMEs to optimise their innovation management. As part of this project, Business Upper Austria performs company analyses to assess your innovation management. Together we will then guide you towards the optimal innovation process. The costs are covered by the European Commission.
Growing companies must regularly look for new innovation projects and ways of optimising their innovation management. As the Upper Austrian location agency, we want to help our SMEs to develop sustainable innovation processes.
Open innovation is a useful method for achieving this. Open innovation is the opposite of closed innovation, where only internal resources are used for innovation. This can be a problem for SMEs with limited resources. Open innovation, however, is about exchanging external and internal know-how in innovation processes by using marketing and by practising sustainable innovation management.
All SMEs that practise regular innovation management or intend to introduce innovation management into the company are eligible to participate. In addition, you should have products or services with potential for growth. Experience has shown that companies with 20 or more employees are particularly well suited for innovation management.
