Best Practice Breakfast: Open Innovation (members only)

From 08:30 to 10:00
Location: Virtual, Online

Best Practice Breakfast: Open Innovation

Ever wondered what your fellow members are working on? And what you could learn from them? In this casual morning coffee-corner exchange, members meet spontaneously to hear the latest on a set topic and then explore broadly how we can inspire each other to further growth.  

Grab your coffee/tea and join for a 90-minute chat on Open Innovation (best practices and the business case for EU|BICs) and the current challenges/opportunities/ideas that are happening now. Through open and one-on-one conversations with EU|BIC experts, you can explore new ways of running your business and the unexpected ideas that are emerging in our community. This is all about sharing ideas, a moment to ask questions, and learning from each other, in a casual way (with or without your breakfast on your table).

Expert cases provided by:

  • EU|BIC Laval Mayenne Technopole
  • EU|BIC CEEI Asturias (tbc)

So, stop reinventing the wheel all the time and get to know your peers better. Our community is made up of dozens of smart individuals and together we can come up with the best solutions. Every session we use two short best practices to kick-start the morning conversation and our collective knowledge to support fellow members. Get introduced to new contacts while we talk about (y)our business!



Also known as challenge-based innovation, means understanding customers in underserved communities and paying attention to the channels that move goods and services to these markets.

Demand-driven innovation uniquely responds to the “pull” of demand rather than the “push” of supply. It supports:

  • Underserved customers access better products and services;
  • EU|BICs make larger impacts on social and environmental problems;
  • Governments serve their citizens;
  • Corporations and local businesses reach new markets and build sustainable value chains;
  • EU|BICs and client companies deliver on their missions.
