    Abstract

    This paper describes a framework for an interactive, business-oriented innovation process in an RTO. The main research question of the paper is the following: "How is it possible to promote an interactive, business-oriented innovation process in an RTO?" The framework consists of the VTT3i philosophy and the VTT3i process behind it for implementing the philosophy in research projects. The VTT3i philosophy consists of three disciplines of innovation - identify, invent, and implement. The process behind the disciplines was tested in five pilot cases. The theoretical background of this paper builds on the discussions of business insights into innovation in an RTO.
