Open Innovation 2.0
Applying Open Innovation 2.0 in the context of co-creating Smart Lighting and Smart Cities solutions.
LightHouse has published a series of articles in the Open Innovation 2.0 Yearbooks to describe the practical challenges in co-creating innovative smart city applications. The articles use the various projects of LightHouse as case studies.

Yearbook 2017-2018
In the 2017/2018 article we focus on co-creating smart cities in quadruple helix settings. The case of Eindhoven moving from triple helix to quadruple helix has been described before in our series of OI2 yearbooks. In this edition we see deeper guidance, based on best practice, on how to get citizens engaged, and on what that engagement means for open innovation ecosystems, including for the public sector and industry participants.

Yearbook 2016
- Designing Smart Societies - From Smart Cities to Smart Societies
In the 2016 article we acknowledge that more and more cities apply Open Innovation principles to apply disruptive technologies to create a better quality of life. The challenges lies in redesigning the city for the digital era. This means redesigning society at large, engaging citizens and other stakeholders in innovation, and actively seeking new connections between sectors. In brief, this means redesigning in co-creation, going far beyond technical solutions alone.

- Smart Lighting Solutions as a Catalyst for Smart Cities - Practical challenges of ambitious innovation partners
In the 2015 article we elaborate on the paradigm shift is required to fully profit from the potential benefits of intelligent and integrated services, as cities, as companies, as citizens and as society at large. The paradigm shift involves shifting towards continuous innovation of services, and towards adaptive platforms rather than individual products. Again practical projects are used to illustrate how this is happening in the context of smart cities.

Yearbook 2014
- Service Design Based on Smart Urban Lighting
In the second article (2014) we describe the transition of the lighting industry from a hardware only industry to a full solution and services industry. It describes projects that aim to improve quality of life in cities with meaningful services. The transition to ICT based lighting services also means in a shift in skills required in the projects and new professions, such as the data scientist and dynamic lighting service designers.

Yearbook 2013
- Participative Innovation in Smart Urban Lighting
Our first article appeared in 2013 and deals with the vision and roadmap we developed for and with the city of Eindhoven. The article describes the approach to co-create a vision and roadmap within the quadruple helix. It emphasises the need for new approached in innovation, where stakeholders from government, knowledge organisations, companies and users participate in new ways of collaboration. An approach where solutions are realised that make our society more future proof, an approach where we participate in a redesign of the world while it keeps spinning.

We are currently preparing the article for the 2017 edition. This time we will focus on the developments towards a smart society and the specific role of open data. We will highlight how open data princioles are used to guide innovation towards value creation for society. We will make the 2017 yearbook available as soon as it is published by the European Commission.
