The newly founded forum for open innovation culture "innOsci" is a platform, think tank and experimental space for a new open innovation culture. The forum is organised by the Stifterverband with the support of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and aims to connect competences in the field of Open Science and Open Innovation. The goal: Pioneers, practitioners and policy-makers want to work together to further develop Open Science and Open Innovation for greater social benefit and added value. InnOsci wants to strengthen open science and open innovation in universities, science, industry and society and bring together experts from various fields in order to make even better use of research results that are already available and will be generated in the future for social and societal innovations and for solutions to socio-political problems.
Lambert Heller, head of the Open Science Lab at the TIB – Leibniz Information Centre for Science and Technology, will share his experience and knowledge of Open Science with innOsci as a member of the Advisory and Sounding Board. "I am looking forward to a productive cooperation – with experimental spaces, new ideas, new formats for innovative solutions and a lot of exchange with great colleagues", says Heller.
