Most studies on open innovation have been conducted at the firm level, linking R&D collaboration to firms’ innovative performance by using aggregated indicators. Given the increasing popularity of R&D collaboration in research projects, it is surprising that, so far, few studies have researched the relationship between open innovation and performance of R&D projects at the project level. As open innovation research at the individual R&D project level is new, we explore the research opportunities related to this new level of analysis: more specifically we identify more accurate ways to couple open innovation to innovation performance, innovation speed, and timing of openness in R&D projects. We formulate several suggestions at the end of the chapter on how open innovation researchers can further develop this topic.

Keywords:   open innovation, R&D project, aggregated indicators, timing, innovation speed, innovation performance
