Abstract

The innovation campus is a new kind of innovation ecosystem. It is a physical location on a large organization’s premises, with high quality real estate and shared facilities, with the aim to actively foster open innovation practices among its residents. To develop such a campus from inception to maturity in practice seems to be a difficult task. This study explores the specific characteristics of the emerging innovation campus concept and develops a maturity capability model. The model consists of four maturity stages and nine dimensions. We validated the model with 5 experts from different Dutch innovation campuses. We propose that there are necessary, as well as sufficient, conditions for maturity development, which enables decision makers to set better priorities for resource deployment. These results assist the different campus’ stakeholders to align their roles and activities during transition over the maturity stages. Further, we suggest avenues for future academic research.
