Innovation is changing our daily lives and reshaping the business landscape. As a result, learning how to foster innovation has become crucial to companies, industries, and even countries. Many companies regard innovation as the engine that keeps their business growing, but feel that it is difficult to innovate when having to rely only on internal resources. In this case, it is common if your usual way of innovation development does not work. To innovate, businesses need to pursue innovative methods. To this end, we propose innovation outsourcing, which leverages both academic and industrial R&D resources worldwide.
The Center of Technology and Business Innovation (COTBI) is an affiliation of Zhejiang University, a top university in China, and Insigma Hengtian Software Ltd.
