In our study, we scrutinized multidisciplinary and multisectoral cooperation to learn about the factors which influence idea generation and coupled open innovation in cooperation. We specialized on multidisciplinary and multisectoral cooperation because those collaborations seem to have a high potential of developing disruptive technologies and innovation. Our study is a pre-test to set up a research model and to prepare further investigations. Purpose - The goal of this study has been the investigation of coupled open innovation processes and the mutual idea generation in multidisciplinary and multisectoral cooperation. We have scrutinized how idea creation and creativity processes work, and how the factors: partner's perspective (motivation, perceived risk, etc.) and cooperation background (rules, cooperation culture etc.) influence the performance of coupled open innovation processes in multidisciplinary and multisectoral consortiums. Originality/value - Our study will give suggestions about the composition of collaborative relationships to create trusting environments to foster idea creation and knowledge/know-how exchange between the participating partners. Thus, coupled outside in and inside out open innovation processes can enable the development of products and services with the potential for disruptive innovations initiated by the input of multidisciplinary technology and multisectoral application knowledge and experience.
