It has been a while since Henry Chesbrough coined the term Open Innovation and formulated it’s definition: “combining internal and external ideas as well as internal and external paths to market to advance the development of new technologies.” (Chesbrough, 2003). In the course of time, the terminology surrounding Open Innovation has evolved alongside developments in management literature and practises. Open Innovation as a paradigm on itself is on its quest to touch base. Rather than taking a (technical) process-oriented approach, Open Innovation is now also about Open Business Models
While citizen participation is considered to be a critical factor of open data use in municipalities, little research to date has either rigorously explained the content of such participation or demonstrated its effect on open data use. This paper suggests a conceptualization of citizen participation and develops a research model linking the proposed multidimensional construct of citizen participation with initial use of open data in municipalities.

This week, nearly 500 urban resilience leaders from cities around the world, including 80 Chief Resilience Officers, are gathering in New York City to share ideas and innovations from their cities, collaborate on new solutions, explore New York as a living laboratory for urban resilience, and to together chart the course of the movement. Here is the programme and links to video lectures (from 100ResilientCities)
During the last decade or so, as the notion of the Smart City became more and more popular, there is a transformation in how some cities manifest the concept. Overall, there seem to have been three distinct phases of how cities have embraced technology and development, moving from tech-company driven, to city government driven, to, finally, citizen driven. In this time, some cities moved from one phase to another linearly, while others have been stuck in one throughout their experiments with smart cities.
Open Governance in the Smart City was developed in the framework of the EU funded Horizon 2020 research project smarticipate. Through eleven cases – 9 European and 2 non-European cities – the report provides an overview of the variety of approaches local governments and communities can take to ICT enabled open governance. In addition to describing the different approaches, the report also discusses risks and challenges, concluding with a number of recommendations.
Whether you are an experienced researcher or a policymaker seeking inspiration for new ideas, the Innovation Growth Lab (IGL) has developed a toolkit to show how adopting an experimental approach can be used to make policies more effective by successfully designing and delivering trials. Practicioners can use the toolkit as a step-by-step guide to the development and implementation of randomised controlled trials (RCTs).
