"Open innovation is a way to future as it captures knowledge-flow from all sources, both internal and external, in an organisation. Open innovation is most essential for government entities, who are tasked to serve the citizens”, Mukherjee said.
"Placing of data in public domain without compromising the privacy, promotes transparency, innovation and opens up new avenues to solve problems of citizens efficiently and effectively," he added.
He expressed these views after being presented the Garwood Award for 'Outstanding Global Leader in Open Innovation' by the UC Berkeley-Haas School of Business in California, United States of America, at Rashtrapati Bhavan here.
Mukherjee dedicated the award to people of the country, his staff and colleagues at the Rashtrapati Bhavan, who he said, 'rendered their support' to him in improving the lot of common people of India through such initiatives.
