Recently Openlab launched the digital platform Develop your city, an ideation and innovation platform based on citizen driven open innovation to solve societal challenges, together. To support the initiatives formed through Develop your city we organize OpenInn Meetups, to share knowledge and discuss different aspects of open innovation. 

The theme of this first OpenInn is different ways to take your ideas to the next level in the innovation process. We will explore ways in which to fund your project or solution, how open innovation processes works and much more.

For this event we invite citizens, people in the public sector, and anyone with an interest in societal improvement and innovation.
