Open Innovation

About the course

The aim of this course is to understand and practice the main concepts and methodologies implemented in Open Innovation processes so PhD candidates and entrepreneurs can take on the technological or technical challenges launched by the stakeholders involved in the process such as public administrations, universities or corporations.

Based on a practical approach, throughout this programme the participants will work on all the different steps of an Open Innovation process.

Furthermore, the course emphasizes development of skills related to creativity, entrepreneurship and business modelling, as well as capacity to detect problems and offer solutions.
