Open Innovation is a new strategic and cultural approach whereby companies—in order to create additional value and better compete on the market—choose to become familiar with and analyse ideas, solutions, tools and technological skills coming from external sources, in particular from startups, universities, research institutes, suppliers, inventors, programmers and consultants.  

The main objective of Open Innovation is precisely to oversee the main market trends, to intercept new business opportunities and to connect with the external ecosystem. 

It is specifically intercepting new business opportunities in addition to connecting the internal environment of the company with the ecosystem of innovation arising beyond the corporate boundaries that prove to be essential actions for maintaining and increasing FS Italiane Group’s competitiveness.
