• About cbased

    We believe in collective intelligence as driver for meaningful innovations.

Who We Are

As holistic innovation consultancy we help companies and institutions to strategically manage their innovation processes since 2010.

At cbased we believe that successful innovations are based on open decisions backed by all stakeholders. We support our customers to develop, implement and optimize decision making processes that foster innovation. Our field-tested open innovation method is based on own research, proprietary processes and online tools. Our developments have resulted in two US patents.


Jointly with the Austrian Council for Research and Technology Development cbased was awarded the ESPA Best Practice Certificate 2011 and serves as an OECD “best practice” example of public sector innovation. The Digital Agenda Vienna, for which cbased implemented the process design, online tools and process management, received politik.de’s audience award for online participation 2015 and the eGovernment award 2015 for Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
