Open RDI (research, development and innovation) is the response of universities of applied sciences (UAS) to the concept of open science used at universities and research institutes. Open RDI operations mean the utilisation of open operating models in the research, development and innovation operations of universities of applied sciences.
The goal is to improve the quality, reliability and visibility of RDI operations, and to promote the societal influence of projects and the creation of new innovations. Openness increases the academic merit of researchers and the professional networking of UAS (university of applied sciences) personnel.
Through the extensive availability and accessibility of the materials, methods, publications, expertise and support services of RDI operations, companies, organisations, decision-makers and citizens can participate in making research increasingly broad.
