Networked innovation is a specific form of open innovation, i.e. the collaboration of two or more companies as partners. A longitudinal research project was set up to explore this innovation form on different organizational levels. In an exploratory study, nine companies were interviewed about the way they carried out networked innovation projects. This paper focuses on the following results: their motivation to partake in networked innovation, the way they find partners, the start of an innovation project and the used processes.
