FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

• How do we handle IPR in Open Innovation projects?
– At the start of each project, we address how to work with Open Innovation and IPRs. We also arrange regular IP Flyover events that address IP questions in relation to Open Innovation. In general, it can be said that you should be open with what challenge you try to address, but not always with the specifics of your solution. At specific events, participants might also have to sign a simple agreement that regulates IPR before attending the event.

• How do we find a good project to start with?
– There are many ways to get started. A popular way is to ask Ideon Open to host a “Challenge Selection Day” where challenges are articulated and prioritized on an agreed scale.

• We love your service, but have difficulties to take resources out of their ordinary duty. Is there any help to get?
– It is not a good idea to outsource too much of your innovation efforts. However, there are a number of  ways to ease the burden on highly qualified personnel. BEYOND has a strong network of both students and independent consultants that can take on roles, driving the project ahead. In this way, your highly qualified personnel can pitch in perspectives, experience and competence as agreed, but do not need to spend an overwhelmingly amount of time tied in the project.

• How do I really go about getting a decision to engage in BEYOND from my home organization?
– There are a number of reasons why it is sometimes difficult to get to a clear go-ahead decision from your home organization. It might be everything from lack of priority from the board to invest in innovation to difficulty for decision makers to find time to understand how to effectively execute a BEYOND project. We support you with creative sessions to navigate the terrain and find solutions that fit your organization.

• Can I do many different projects within the 12 month period?
– Yes, you can start a new project with a new team every third month. Please refer to our price list for examples.
