PLANS & PRICING
Those five research institution cover the whole spectrum of academic research in the Amsterdam area. For research to create a societal and economic impact, it is important to facilitate and stimulate interaction between academic researchers and the industry. Furthermore, researchers must be enabled to drive the transition from scientific discoveries to innovation on the market.
The Business Basics Fund aims to support projects that test and build evidence of innovative methods that encourage SMEs to adopt productivity-boosting.
Innovation Intermediaries is a concept in innovation studies to help understand the role of firms, agencies and individuals that facilitate innovation by providing the bridging, brokering, knowledge transfer necessary to bring together the range of different organisations and knowledge needed to create successful innovation. The term open innovation intermediaries was used for this concept by Henry Chesbrough in his book as “companies that help other companies implement various facets of open innovation “.
Innovation intermediaries are variously described as ‘bridgers’, ‘ change agents’, ‘brokers’. The same applies to potential users of innovations, so that intermediaries are needed to bring organisations and knowledge together to build supply networks and markets. For instance technology intermediaries are created to help firms to take advantage of their technological developments. There are three main areas of focus:  business model innovation; management of intellectual property; innovation of services.
Intermediaries have also been defined as a system of complementary organizational categories that shape, pilot and ensure systemic integration, by reducing the complexity of transactions, enabling institutional change and promoting crucial learning dynamics among system components, organizations and entrepreneurs; across political, economic and social innovation-relevant levels. These categories could be settled together, permitting a holistic approximation to the matter of intermediation.
The novel notion of a system of intermediary organizations could also facilitate the coordination and evaluation of their profiles and missions over time and space-based requirements. Intermediaries play a wide range of roles, facilitating the bringing together of various actors at different parts of innovation processes such as ideation, invention, standards making, managing IPR, commercialisation, creating new market segments etc.
These intermediaries can specialise in different services. Basic functions include process coordination and matchmaking between innovation seekers and potential solution providers, knowledge and finance broking, testing, standardisation, project valuation and portfolio management etc. Open innovation Intermediaries are responsible for facilitating the open innovation activity that companies are undertaking, focusing on fully exploiting the benefits of the mutual action and thoroughly mitigating the disadvantages and risks for all of the companies.

Open innovation has gained increased managerial and academic attention since and follows theoretical approaches of innovation networks. My dissertation reports an explorative action research study on participatory cases about how open innovation partnerships emerge in practice. I was engaged in industrial and academic projects where new ideas, external technologies and new start-up ventures were searched and matched for open innovation projects.
Therefore, the formation of new network ties for joint business opportunities, matchmaking, is in the focus of the research. The problem of matchmaking arises from the network and market structure. In the thesis, it is shown that matchmaking for open innovation requires a multi-sided market perspective. Innovation intermediaries act as matchmaker and coordinate the matching process between multiple market agents.
The contribution is a shift from matchmaking as pure transaction-based market mechanisms towards interactive mechanisms over time, but with economic long-term impact for all market agents.

The unique solution addresses one of the main back office processing issues for banks which deals with a mass influx of documents from third party channels. Stordoc significantly reduces turnaround times for banking personnel and headcount, while simultaneously increasing overall compliance levels. Matchi plays a key role in helping banks reach out to innovators from across the globe and is essentially making the world smaller for these innovators.
Geographical distances no longer pose an issue for many innovators thus widening the pool of banking customers they previously did not have access to. This global community brings innovators and banks together to establish collaborative relationships and new business opportunities for driving banking forward and increasing return on investment for both parties.

Sharing knowledge and best practices across different levels of an agricultural system promotes health and resilience. The art, however, is not in connecting different people, but in finding ways to facilitate discussions so that voices can be heard and understood outside of individual comfort zones. A Hunger, Nutrition and Climate Justice Dialogue in Dublin last week answered this challenge by aiming to improve food security through cross system dialogues.
The conference brought farmers, policy makers, civil servants, scientists and select business leaders together to share knowledge and to highlight examples of how science and policy makers are successfully working with local populations – especially farmers. The goal was to use dialogue to improve linkages between the issues of hunger, nutrition and climate justice at all levels of the food system. It recognized the need to better connect to each other, and by extension to better connect the related issues of hunger, nutrition and climate justice across all levels of policy making.
In particular, the Learning Circle element of the conference was an important forum for connections and knowledge exchange. Learning Circles featured case study presentations showcasing best practice collaboration between science and local people; and facilitated discussions regarding questions that the case studies spurred.
The Learning Circles generated many ideas and feedback. Others stressed that continuous research is essential to ensuring varietals and soils that are adapted to changing climate conditions.
