  11. 11. Open Innovation Centres: why ?• Standard formats are relevant, but have limited possibilities• How to organize cooperation in a more comfortable set-up ?• Standard formats: • Good students and papers (no control) • Contract research (loss of control) • Consortia • Goals set at start, no “development” • Consortium and goals governed by external factors• Contracts: tough negotiation on rates and IP: everything to be decided at start Inhoudsopgave 12
