Open Innovation Forum gets Paris launch
Pack Forum Facility, Paris
The IfM has launched a new Open Innovation initiative aimed at firms involved in the Food & Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) Value Streams.
The new forum builds on the success of the Cambridge OI Network which resulted in the report 'How to Implement Open Innovation'.
Open Innovation is increasingly being used by businesses as a way of improving the capability to create and capture value, by improving the rate and quality of innovation.
Rather than relying on internal resources firms share knowledge and technologies with other companies in a bid to create new commercial opportunities.
The Forum is aimed at Food and FMCG manufacturers but also extends the length of the value chain, from raw materials and packaging suppliers to equipment manufacturers and through to include logistics organisations and retailers.
The group is about to stage its inaugural meeting in Paris. The launch event is to be hosted by global leader in protective presentation and food packaging Sealed Air at its Pack Forum facility in the French capital on October 13th.
