The Long Way from Science to Innovation – A Research Approach for Creating an Innovation Project Methodology
The presented paper aims at proposing a research methodology for creation and approbation of a flexible methodology for development and management of innovative projects in scientific organizations (FMIPSO). For basement, the following flexible methodologies have been used: Lean startup, Agile, Scrum, Design thinking, User centricity and User innovation which all are extremely applied in ICT development. The creation of FMIPSO addresses the weak success of developed and realized innovations by scientific organizations and universities, especially relevant for multidisciplinary innovation projects that include ICT as well as other sciences. This lack of good innovation performance by scientific organizations further increases the distance and integrity of the science-business-related innovation industry. The research approach includes approbation of the FMIPSO by three interdisciplinary innovation projects from science institutions for providing proofs of its relevance and applicability.
