This Special Issue includes selected studies that contribute to our understanding on how sustainability and open innovation capabilities in supply chain, such as network analysis, policy analysis, corporate sustainability, and so on, can lead to corporate survival and growth, and, hence, to the conditions of sustainability in its diverse aspects and dimensions. Corporate sustainability is usually accomplished with numerous factors. This Special Issue attempts to describe the conditions of sustainability in urban and firms’ environments—including the themes of open innovation, open business models, technology precincts, knowledge and innovation clusters, and so on. This Special Issue seeks to collect theoretical and empirical studies on complicated and dynamic investigations of the relation among open innovation, corporate survival, corporate growth, sustainability, and industrial clustering. By doing so, the Special Issue provides a better understanding of the role of sustainability and open innovation in firms—both start-ups and small and medium size enterprises.
