dc.description.abstract Web technology has leaded the world into era of Web 2.0. Now the world is becoming more connected and networked than ever before. Under this circumstance, it seems reasonably clear that how to innovate and how to use resources in a more efficient and effective way becomes one of the most important topic of discussion in this era. Now a number of open movements have been merged into the current innovation activities, including open innovation, open source, crowd souring. People have realized the power of collaboration in a wider range, through bridging the internal and external resources; it was further noted in some certain cases innovation could be faster and more sustainable. In addition, the trend of open innovation has been developed towards the form of “community In the mega-trend of open innovation, research institution should seek its unique pattern and way to make innovation development as well. Now, cross-disciplinary collaboration has been one of the common research ways for research institution. "How to build an open innovation community for cross-disciplinary collaboration research" is the main research objective of this thesis. And the aim of this thesis was to create guidelines for cross-disciplinary collaboration research institutions to build open innovation communities. Question of “how to initiate and sustain community” has been investigated in this thesis. The extensive literature review has identified attributes of open innovation community summarizing process of building open innovation community and key points along its process. By studying the cases of P&G's "connect and develop" program, OpenIDEO, and SFC (Sino-Finnish Center), key points of building open innovation community together with practical complements have been discussed in depth. Based on these insights, the guidelines of building open innovation community were therefore possible to be outlined and summarized. BiDL research lab of Tongji University was the design case, which had been carefully studied in this thesis, and the guidelines of building open innovation community have been applied to BiDL research lab. A major effort was imported by the author to systematically discuss the key points of building open innovation community in the view of the background and current situation of BiDL lab, as well as the way how to design the communication platforms of BiDL community. Based on the prototype of BiDL community, this thesis proposed a new direction of development for cross-disciplinary collaboration research, and would be a reference for those who wish to build open innovation communities. en
