Learning outcomes

In this master's level course students learn how ideas can be turned into innovations in international context. After the course students are able to apply innovation-related theories in different settings in order to generate new approaches to international innovation issues. The course enhances complex problem solving and communication skills and team work capabilities.
The course objectives are structured with three more specific content foci as follows:
Content focus (A): Idea creation and evaluation: Students will get a basic understanding of challenges pertaining to idea creation and evaluation; they will learn to independently search, evaluate and select literature and operationalize it in a group context autonomously.
Content focus (B): Developing ideas: Students will search, select and apply literature in regard to innovation development; they will learn to independently search, evaluate and select literature and operationalize it in a group context autonomously.
Content focus (C): Commercialization: Students will search, select and apply literature in regard to international commercialization; they will learn to independently search, evaluate and select literature and operationalize it in a group context autonomously.

Contents

By analysing and solving problems faced in authentic innovation projects students go through key decisions on idea creation and evaluation, idea development, and commercialisation.
