Open Wave – open innovation for future boat industry
What kind of role does user and trend information have in the development of future products and services for the boat industry?
How does the concept generation method function in identifying product and service possibilities?
What kind of boating products and services could increase boating use?
What kind of technological trends create new product and service possibilities in the boat industry?
These questions are among the prominent points of interest in the Open wave –project which commenced during the autumn of 2010. The goal of the project is to research how open innovation methods can be used in identifying future product and service possibilities in the boat industry. The Open wave project also aims to support and promote the utilization of user research and design in the R&D activities of companies within the industry. Muova coordinates the Open wave – project and VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland is the project partner. The project entity is funded by the Finnish Funding Agency for Technology and Innovation (Tekes) and also involves a number of companies in the boat industry including the Finnish Marine Industries Federation, Finnboat.
