Open Innovation in Science

Intensifying research that benefits society directly - this is the goal of the initiative of the Ludwig Boltzmann Gesellschaft, which is unique in Europe. Science enters into a dialogue with the population and research processes are redesigned.

  • Individuals become experts
  • Science acquires new insights
  • Research develops solutions

OIS Initiative

In the next few years the Ludwig Boltzmann Gesellschaft will work even more intensively on systematically opening up scientific processes as part of its ongoing OIS initiative.

Following successful pilot projects on the subject, the LBG is now launching the world's first "Open Innovation in Science Research and Competence Center" (OIS Center) and setting up an OIS Research Institute into mental health among children and young people that will operate from its inception in accordance with the principles of open innovation.
