OI2LAB: A gamified approach to Open Innovation

OI2LAB has started this year with a particularly rich offers for its users: January 2020 is not only the month in which we will unveil the winners of our 2nd Open Call ,  but it is also when we officially launch our revamped gamification component.

OI2LAB is in fact offering its users a completely new set of prizes and perks. OI2LAB will reward each user who successfully complete one of the many Open Innovation lessons available on the platform with 50 points, which can be collected to redeem one of the services offered by the platform. For example, you can get a 1-on-1 free consultancy with our partner RTC North with just 400 points, or win a business model assessment session with one of our expert with just 500 points.

All you have to do to collect these points is to start digging into the wealth of content we have designed to make your organization ready to on-board successful Open Innovation processes: for example, you could enhance your knowledge about Open Innovation or learn how to manage OI in your organization.

Also, if you get at least 600 points on OI2LAB, you will be entering our final price competition which consists in one entry valid for the INVITE Final Event, which will take place at ISPIM in Berlin  next 10th June 2020.

To redeem your prices simply click on the button which will appear in “My Profile” page once you reach one of the tier mentioned above.

Please note that you can redeem your prizes before 30.06.2020, and that the free entry to the INVITE final event will be selected by the users which will have gained at least 600 points by 15.04.2020. The users with at least 600 points by this cut-off date will be anonymised and assigned a random number. A software will then randomly pick and select one winner from the list procedurally generated.

If you have any question about the OI2LAB, the eLearning offer or INVITE Project, please feel free to drop us a line using the contact form.
