About BoS#4

In this session we would like to dive deeper into the strengths of creatives from the CCIs and the relevance of Open and Cross Innovation for the implementation of the SDGs. Facing the VUCA (volatility, uncertainty, complexity, ambiguity) world, which may also be described as vulnerable considering the current pandemic and the urgent need for sustainable action, agents of the CCIs are predestined to play key roles in finding appropriate solutions. We heartedly invite you to discuss our paper with us and the urgency to help new effective innovation approaches and ecosystems come into being and to explore the role of public intermediaries within this context. We are driven by meaningful innovation through Cross Innovation and are grateful for fruitful exchange on the further dissemination of this session's underlying paper into a Non Paper.
