”INNOVATION BY FINDING NOVEL WAYS OF COMBINING CAPABILITIES AND RESOURCES OF DIFFERENT COMPANIES (C&T)”
Topics covered in the workshop will include the following:
- Kick off – Inspirational keynote on innovation with relevance to Maritime, Tourism and/or Sustainable Energy Production.
- Innovation charrette – Work in small teams with members from both traditional and creative industries on a challenge based on opportunity areas for companies in the fields of Maritime, Tourism and Sustainable Energy Production:
- Explore and frame current opportunities within the Maritime, Tourism and Sustainable Energy ecosystems. Which actors are involved? What are their goals? What prevents them from accomplishing them? How do they attempt to solve the situation? What resources and skills they have?
- Use creative industries’ capabilities and resources as potential patterns for developing new value propositions. How could services in the fields of Maritime, Tourism and Sustainable Energy Production be if we could mix in the experiences, the culture or the production systems of creative industries?
- Develop iteratively ideas into concepts by prototyping the new products, services or strategies. How do the new services work? Are they understandable? Are they perceived as valuable? What is the experience of users and clients? What works and what doesn’t? What additional prototyping activities do we need to perform to further explore and refine each proposal?
- Analyze and operationalize collaboration among two or more involved companies. When are the different capabilities needed? Who hold each skill or resource? How will diverse organizations collaborate?
- Towards joint innovation — Reflect on the previous process. Was collaboration fruitful? Was it easy? What are the potential barriers to translate the experience beyond the workshop and into real joint innovation projects? Which are the challenges, capabilities and resources of the participant companies that pose an opportunity for joint innovation? Is there a need for any kind of support? What would be a realistic roadmap for such collaboration?
