Far from being yet another innovation, the Internet is a novel way of solving problems while supporting creativity and communication. The Internet fosters new forms of corporate, cultural, artistic, creative and knowledge­–based goods, as well as the interaction between consumers, entrepreneurs, companies and the general public. The behaviour of individuals, corporations and institutions in terms of how they cooperate online is currently changing. This not only means new forms of employment and new job opportunities but also new technologies and new business models.

Internet­enabled innovation is a topic that goes far beyond corporate technology management and thus necessitates research from a much broader perspective. The following research questions are of particular interest: How can the Internet change knowledge dissemination? How can online participation be organised? How can online participation reach beyond the means of web browsers?

To explore these questions, the multi­layered approaches of Internet­based innovations will be determined and outlined. Particular aspects that require deeper analysis will be pinpointed, such as Opening Science, User Innovation in the Energy Market, Innovation and Entrepreneurship, and Open Source Hardware. To make for a dynamic research process, it is intended to include other researchers in the project, obtain feedback from outside sources as early as possible and provide information to those interested in the topic.
