Open Innovation Testbeds gathered at IndTech 2024 to discuss a collaborative strategy for the commercialisation of services

June 14, 2024

Around 30 representatives from 16 Open Innovation Testbeds (OITB) projects gathered in Namur, Belgium, on June 6th for the workshop “A Collaborative Strategy for the Commercialization of OITB Services.” This event coincided with IndTech 2024, where the session “Open Innovation Test Bed: A New Kid on the Block” took place on June 5th. Key takeaways included identifying collaboration areas for joint service portfolios in specific markets, steps to achieve these goals, and the challenges ahead. We also discussed the medium-term vision of a unified OITB ecosystem, aligned with future technology infrastructures in advanced materials. By identifying synergies, sharing resources, and addressing industry needs—particularly for SMEs and startups—the final aim is to support a more competitive industry that drives sustainable growth and employment in Europe.
