The Luxembourg Open Innovation Club is an initiative dedicated to the development of business relations between large accounts, intermediate-sized enterprises and innovative start-ups through open innovation.

Innovation cannot be made up: it comes alive through collaborations, exchanges, idea sharing and relationships.

The objective of open innovation is to connect companies to their environment to access new ideas, external competencies and potential sources of growth. Open Innovation calls for innovations development based on the meetings of talents from different industries and with different backgrounds. Such an approach fosters the construction of an environment and conditions that will create common value.

Open innovation stands for an innovation strategy that balances internal R&D and external input, coming from start-ups, university, clients, providers or even competitors.

What are the objectives of the club?

  • Animate the community of innovation in Luxembourg
  • Facilitate the partnership between start-ups and large accounts
  • Create a structure dedicated to exchanges and expertise on open innovation
