Innovation and Entrepreneurship Methods

Our largely globalized world is rapidly changing and we are confronted with diverse societal challenges that are intertwined with the systems that connect us all. Facing these challenges every organization in public sector, the commercial world or social innovators need to change their offerings (products/services) and the way they create and deliver them. Innovation and change require skills focusing on creativity, collaboration, self-organized teams, problem-solving and co-creation.

The summer school Innovation and Entrepreneurship Methods will foster your creative thinking and provide you designs, tools and new approaches towards innovation. The methods will help you to develop and implement new ideas for your current and future study or work context.

The methods of this summer school are part of an EU Erasmus+ funded programme named TACIT. All of the methods have been designed by the University of Exeter, University of Southern Denmark as well as HHL Leipzig Graduate School of Management and tested within the project with the following project partners: LEGO, BMW, Lufthansa Systems, AachenMünchener and NHS.
