“In recent years we’ve seen rapid adoption of open innovation and our services specifically across Europe, surpassing other areas of the world,” said Dwayne Spradlin, CEO of InnoCentive. “With nearly a third of our clients headquartered in Europe and many more who are large U.S.-based Seekers with European operations, it was time to open our first European location. We selected Munich, because it is at the epicenter of our European customer base and we will continue to invest in our European presence. Eventually we would like to see Germany recognized as a center for open innovation in Europe.”

European companies lend themselves particularly well to adopting the open innovation model due to the collaborative and multinational foundation of countries and firms in the European Union. Further, the global economic crisis has forced organizations everywhere to rethink how they innovate — requiring them to use every tool at their disposal.

Coupled with access to InnoCentive’s global Solver community, this offering is critical for European organizations seeking to tap open innovation for competitive advantage.

A recent commissioned study conducted by Forrester Consulting on behalf of InnoCentive confirmed that global consumer goods company SCA achieved a Return on Investment (ROI) of 74 percent with payback in less than three months as a result of posting innovation Challenges to the InnoCentive Global Marketplace. The complete Forrester Consulting study, titled “The Total Economic Impact of InnoCentive Challenges,” is available to download at no cost.
