The main goal of this dissertation requires the utilisation of a research methodology that allow us to test whether the twinning model could serve as proxy for a new scheme at the EU level to foster open innovation among EU member states administrations. In this sense, the literature review has provided us with the fundamentals on the concept of open innovation in the public sector as well as its different dimensions of application.

In order to test whether the Twinning model complies with the minimum requirements to foster open innovation a quantitative approach is followed through the delivery of questionnaires to professionals who have actively worked in this kind of projects. In this sense, the quantitative data obtained through the questionnaires is used to test the viability of different dimensions of open innovation within the Twinning tool, which have been identified within the work of distinct authors throughout the literature review.
