In recent years, literature on innovation has begun to explore new models of innovation in which commercially valuable knowledge is easily exchanged among different actors of the innovation process. Following the logic of open innovation, it seems reasonable to make the strongly protected IP marketable, as it constitutes the means to earn rents for the company. Nonetheless, companies are currently facing difficulties managing the dilemma of strongly, and weakly protected intellectual property. Particularly, designing an open innovation processes that fits best company needs remains an unsolved challenge for most practitioners. There is a growing need to manage disclosure, access, and process, to best leverage the IP held by companies, and to create the greatest value from open innovation. Our project’s objective is to make patents more transparent, following the motto of the Peter Pribilla-Foundation: We aim to make the invisible in patents visible.
