Open Innovation Masterclass

Understand the principles of open innovation and how it can unlock radical innovation in your workplace with London & Partners and the Royal College of Art.

Presented by London & Partners in collaboration with the Royal College of Art, the Open Innovation Masterclass will introduce you to the principles of open innovation, and equip you with the critical tools required to take a more outward and open approach to generating ideas, transformation and growth.

We don’t just have to innovate to survive, we have to innovate how we innovate... but you can’t do it on your own. There is more knowledge and expertise out there than any company can own or even control. Innovation has to be collaborative. That is why open innovation is not just important, it’s a necessity.
