How to build effective collaborations to practice open innovation?

Open innovation is becoming a very common expression nowadays that needs to be fully understood by those who are interested in adopting this business paradigm
Universities and research centres, on average, have problems in creating links to industry to commercialize the technologies they conceive and develop
Companies are oftentimes unaware of the available technologies that universities and research centres around the world make available for licensing opportunities
There are several tools and initiatives around the world helping, especially SMEs, in finding tech opportunities stemming from universities and research centres. The services offered by the EU-Japan Technology Transfer Helpdesk are an example of these tools that can benefit greatly those interested in finding available technologies or build research collaborations with research institutions.
