Open innovation is the new paradigm for private sector innovation. The emergence of new technologies and globalisation have facilitated the development of this new phenomenon, which is also taking off in the public sector.

This research analyses whether the European Commission could foster processes of open innovation among the administrations of EU Member States through the application of the “Twinning Model”.

Twinning projects have served during more than a decade as an instrument for the cooperation between Public Administrations of EU Member States (MS) and of beneficiary countries (BC), with the objective of providing support for the transposition, implementation and enforcement of EU legislation. In this sense, this Twinning scheme has become an interesting experiment of open innovation led by the EU Commission through fostering collaboration between EU administrations and non-EU administrations.
