The relationship between innovation and futures research has been studied often. However, these studies focus on the relationship within a company. What the relationship is between ‘open futures research’ and ‘open innovation’ has not been the topic of many studies yet. Given that there is a shift towards an ‘open’ approach in both, futures research and innovation management, the question how to use futures research openly in ‘innovation systems’ becomes an interesting topic for research. In this paper we want to contribute to research on this topic by exploring what the impact is of ‘open innovation’ on the execution of futures research. More specifically, we investigate the use of futures research (i.e., its organization, processes, and methods) in innovation systems (IS) in three case studies by applying the Cyclic Innovation Model.
