MEDAIA – Experimenting Open Innovation in the Media Field

Cover for article 'MEDAIA – Experimenting Open Innovation in the Media Field'

This publication consists of articles written by authors who participated in the MEDAIA project´s experiments and activities. MEDAIA project explored innovation in the media industry under the Six City Strategy’s Open Innovation Platforms spearhead project. The project executed 13 small-scale sub-projects seeking new ideas and innovation methods and novel collaboration models between universities, companies and public organizations in the Helsinki and Tampere regions.

MEDAIA project discovered that innovation-seeking processes do not always have to be successful. To become a successful innovator, one also needs to learn to fail, and more specifically, one needs to learn how to fail effectively: how to quickly test whether something works or not, how to profit from failures, and how to try again.
