Designing events to foster innovation : Experiences with open innovation events in Grow2Build

Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional


The EU-Interreg IV project Grow2build aims to improve the supply chain for hemp and flax based building materials. In the frame of this project Wageningen UR has organized eight interactive open innovation events. In these events people met, explored bottlenecks and opportunities and provided input to translate ideas for biobased building into concrete plans. In this brochure the Dutch experiences with open innovation events in Grow2Build are presented in three categories which follow the flow of an innovation process.
