The Open Innovation Map is a platform designed to visualize key players in the field of Open Innovation as well as new creative ecosystems and multi-industry companies on a world scale.
The project aims to put together the OI players and highlight their projects and initiatives. The UGC (User-Generated Content) feature enables users to join OIM database by subscribing to the project, and then create a network with other participants. OIM database is presented in two views: the map geolocating key players in open innovation (startups, developers, experts, clusters, public/private research laboratories etc.) and the catalog including detailed information about each mapped player.
