The aim of this contribution is twofold. First, the presence, use and appreciation of open innovation practices are captured by using five waves of the Community Innovation Survey of Belgium to develop indicators. Second, the relevance of these indicators is observed with respect to the region in which SMEs are located and the effects of open innovation practices on the innovative performance of SMEs.
