The goal of our project was to propose the development of an interactive open innovation portal to allow academic institutions like WPI and the American University of Sharjah to become more involved in open collaboration efforts with other corporations, universities, and the community. In order to successfully achieve our goal, our team interviewed various organizations involved in open innovation to understand the many responsibilities, challenges and methods they face. Our team also submitted a survey to students to gauge the knowledge pool of open innovation at each institution. The interviews and survey provided essential data and uncovered suggestions to assist in the development and implementation of an open innovation network prototype at various institutions. The designed portal prototype will create a platform for corporations and universities to connect and collaborate efficiently while improving online project experiences, increasing student open collaboration involvement, and assist student-lead startups by incorporating external collaboration.
