Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionAcademicpeer-review


This chapter presents how to use a game to teach open innovation, based on
a particular experience from which lessons and recommendations are drawn.
The focus is on playing a board game in a graduate course of the international
engineering program with a focus on innovation and busniess. We identify several
important themes related to the process of learning through playing and the social
dynamics of open innovation, while we also highlight possible caveats of “playing”
and practicing open innovation.
