The project

The democratization of innovation occurs through the integration of innovative practices by companies. The iPRODUCE project adopts well-tested concepts and approaches with the aim of extending their use especially within SMEs, which have more barriers in benefiting from collaborative approaches. For this reason, a platform will be created and it will aim to facilitate the adoption of approaches such as user driven open innovation and co-creation.


The expected outcome is the activation of an Open digital platform supported by innovative tools that will allow stakeholders to interact and cooperate through it. It will be active, monitored and evaluated in 6 local ecosystems characterized by different experiences, objectives and areas of application.
