This chapter evaluates the application of open innovation to education. It summarizes the experiences of the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg in helping students overcome the well-known, but still dominant, barriers to innovation and to train them to develop an open innovation mindset. It analyzes what type of teaching methods can be used to support students in becoming open innovation ambassadors and argues that educating students to become open innovation ambassadors requires universities to rethink their own approach to teaching and to open themselves to a new generation of innovators.

Keywords:   open innovation, education, University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, teaching methods, innovation ambassadors
