Part of the Management for Professionals book series (MANAGPROF)


The use of purposive inflows and outflows of knowledge to accelerate internal innovation and to expand the markets by external use of innovation has recently become essential not only in business strategies but also national policies. According to a literature review, open innovation policies should have three aspects, namely, knowledge and technology production, distribution, and consumption. If different levels of open innovation policies are introduced into the national innovation system (NIS), different effects occur not only in the short term but also the long term. The fundamental goal of open innovation policy should be vitalizing Schumpeterian dynamics of the open innovation economy system.
