Are you interested in designing and launching initiatives đź’ˇ that support user-centred open innovations in SMEs?

Our project just had a conference on open innovation contests for SMEs where main findings from 7 UX Challenges across Europe and testimonials from companies, students, mentors and organisers involved in those challenges have been presented for more than 80 participants. What is more, 5 simultaneous workshops have been held to discuss the benefits of open innovation contests and how to utilise their potential to the fullest regardless of the field they are being used.

Didn’t get the chance to participate in the conference or missed one the workshops of your interest? No worries. We have everything recorded and available for you at our website: You can check it out at any time.

Furthermore, we have prepared UX Challenge Playbook – a guide designed to support innovation agencies, development agencies, research and education institutions, businesses, as well as public administrations, to learn how to set up an open innovation initiative to foster the user-centred design of products and services. It provides details on the UX Challenge – a hackathon-alike innovation contest that allows companies to engage with design talents and professionals with the aim to test and improve the user experience and usability of digital products and services.
