Abstract
This study aims to enrich the understanding of the cultural dimension of open innovation (OI) collaboration between business and academia by focusing on challenges and how professionals build trust with universities to overcome them. It examines collaborative OI activities between IBM and universities in the Nordic region. We see the need to study this issue as the cultural aspect is an underexplored topic in existing OI literature. Our qualitative study is based on the theory of phenomenology. We conducted nine semi-structured, in-depth interviews with managers and university ambassadors from IBM Norway, Denmark and Finland to find out how they make sense of the phenomenon in focus based on their personal experiences.
