Abstract

The Finnish Government has contributed to enhancing the innovation capabilities of research organisations and universities within Finland with the KINO and Innovation Sout fundings during the years 2016 and 2017. The main aim of VTT KINO -project was to accelerate commercialization of VTT´s research results via spin-off creation and licensing.

The key activities of KINO and implementation of identified most promising processes was continued within VTT Innovation Scout, during 2017. Within this project the main aim was to develop processes, tools and ways of working, that accelerate research based innovations, growth and renewal at VTTs customers; companies and society.

The Innovation Scout project was formulated as challenges linked closely to VTT’s strategy:
Challenge 1: Ideation tools (Päivi Mikkonen and Inka Orko)
Challenge 2: VTT 100 (Sami Kazi)
Challenge 3: RDI Ecosystems (Päivi Mikkonen)
Challenge 4: Internationalisation (Jari Uotila)
Challenge 5: Customer access to VTT (Martti Perttula and Tuula Hämäläinen)
Challenge 6: Evaluation culture (Olli Kuusisto and Kirsi-Maria Hyytinen)

The methodology within the challenges was explorative. Many trials and pilots were made and even the not successful trials were seen as valuable learnings. Nevertheless, many very interesting findings and development results were made and they contribute straight to VTT’s strategic development programs in the coming years.
