Abstract

Innovation in the medical technology (med tech) industry has a major
impact on well-being in society. Open innovation has the potential to
accelerate the development of new or improved healthcare solutions.
Building on work system theory (WST), this paper explores how a
multi-sided open innovation platform can systematically be established
in a German med tech industry cluster in situations where firms had no
prior experience with this approach. We aim to uncover problems that may
arise and identify opportunities for overcoming them. We performed an
action research study in which we implemented and evaluated a
multi-sided web-based open innovation platform in four real-world
innovation challenges. Analyzing the four different challenges fostered a
deeper understanding of the conceptual and organizational aspects of
establishing the multi-sided open innovation platform as part of a
larger work system. Reflecting on the findings, we developed five design
principles that shall support the establishment of multi-sided open
innovation platforms in other contexts. Thus, this paper contributes to
both theory and practice.
