Dear Innovation Managers,
As part of the ongoing work on innovation within the OCTs, I will appreciate your input and your proactive assistance to define in more details the innovation eco-system in your territory. The objective of the study is to determine your current innovation ecosystem to better position ourselves to assist you. The first deliverable from this exercise will be a toolkit to better assist you in identifying and supporting innovators.
In order to be complete, we are sending questionnaire to two agents:
- Primarily to you, Innovation manager within the Government and secondarily to the members of the Innovation Council/Advisory Board and other agencies working with innovations
- Innovators, inventors and creative individuals
In order to do a good job here, we will require from you.
Firstly, we will need you to respond to the questionnaire. The questionnaire for you to respond to as Innovation Manager is included here. The questionnaire should take no more than 20 minutes to complete.
Secondly, we will need your assistance in identifying :
- Members of the Innovation Council/Advisory Board and other agencies working with innovations
- Innovative individuals, inventors and creative individuals in your territory. We will not be too specific about this because we prefer to cast a wider net and extract the truly innovative ideas/individuals through the instrument itself. We are looking for a selection of 10 innovators/inventors/creative people from each territory in any area of economic activity. This list could be considered as one very wide, extended list for the potential nominations for OCTA Innovation BIC Awards. For your information questionnaire should be find at the link included here.
We will need their names and their email addresses to send them a questionnaire and, perhaps, requests for some particular information about them and their innovation activity.
