The Open Innovations Forum 2018: Who Wins in Global Technology Contests?
What are the reasons for technological contests to be held? Is there any difference between contests organized in Russia from their foreign counterparts? Can we talk about the global technical contests formed? All these were discussed by the participants of the Open Innovations forum at the plenary discussion "Who Wins in Global Technological Contests?" Initially, technological contests arose as a tool to stimulate technological breakthroughs and the development of certain industries. Despite their long history, this is a rather new phenomenon for our country and the organizers of competitions held in Russia face the problem of explaining to potential participants and partners what kind of events they are and what benefits they can bring.
