    Abstract

    This article reviews the progress, phases and turning points of the Open Innovation Learning Network Project, from the viewpoints of project evolution, organisation and sensemaking. The objective of the project was to generate and communicate information on the idea and nature of open innovation. Another aim was to support the adoption, utilisation and dissemination of open innovation methods and practices. This was to be achieved through networking and new, net-based media supporting horizontal interaction. The project strove to support open innovation practices, primarily amongst companies within the technology industry.
