From the Abstract:
Communities and their regions have an unprecedented opportunity to integrate higher levels of organization, process and tools to connect legacy assets residing in colleges, universities, and libraries to people and their ideas; to reinvigorate institutions, organizations and government; and to strengthen creativity, collaboration, and communication for innovation and enterprise in education, economic, and workforce development. This paper begins a discussion of the value collaborative innovation networks (COINS) offer to accelerate and strengthen innovation in Open Source Economic Development (OSED) in the Civic Space, and to explore the design of an improved model of I-Open Civic Forums, a process driven approach to build networks, community, and communications for enterprise collaboration. By collaborating with research in the emerging Science of Collaboration, this practical model will strengthen research as well as individual experience and collaborative behaviours to create new knowledge. With this intelligence, industry innovation, design, and enterprise solutions can more successfully address global issues affecting both social and economic aspects of society today.
