Collaborative Innovation: Transforming Business, Driving Growth

While globalizing forces have spread innovation to economies around the world, large differences remain in the level of economic growth. Forum research suggests that a set of approaches termed “collaborative innovation” can lead to more efficient growth through innovation. This would involve greater cooperation across regions, industries, supply chains and actors, supported by appropriately designed policy environments
