Key element considered in Science2Society is the university-industry-society interface schemes (UIS interface schemes) in the field of Open Innovation and Science 2.0. These UIS interface schemes have been applied to seven concrete use cases (so-called pilots) of university-industry-society cooperation tailoring and adapting their building blocks to different contexts, sectors and applications.

The objective of this report is to describe how the seven UIS scheme pilots have been implemented during the project and which lessons learned and recommendations have been derived.

In the context of Science2Society, the blueprint represents a step-by-step guide for setting up a University-Industry-Society (UIS) Interaction Mechanism in the field of Open Innovation.  Each blueprint includes a detailed process overview of the interaction mechanism, followed by relevant insights (e.g. characteristics of the innovation actors, enabling elements, challenges & tips) and the most important findings and recommendations.
