Abstract(s)The Portuguese footwear industry had in the last five years a remarkable performance in the exportation values, trade balance, quality and product design, and international image. The forecasts for 2016 are very positive, with a higher exportation growth than other Portuguese industries during this period [1]. After a long period of difficulties and with a strong reduction of companies and employees since 1994, nowadays the Portuguese footwear industry is a success case in the Portuguese industry. There are several innovative companies in this traditional and mature sector in Portugal, some of them leaders and important players in the international/global context. This paper analyses the innovation category followed by the companies, according Oslo Manual classification, developed by seven innovative companies (two are leaders in the Portuguese footwear industry) and shows the linkage that the partners have in the innovation processes, where open innovation is clearly identified as critical for these excellent performance achieved.
