Students engage with local and international companies and organisations to train in the innovation process in teams with different competences and work in an environment of collaborative creativity.This unique learning model empowers programme participants with the right skills and methods to apply business-, engineering- and design-led perspectives to complex societal issues by a co-creative approach and guides them to further evaluate innovative products and services to create a sustainable effect on the people and the planet.
Complimentary to the core academic studies, students engage with IKEA, the program's main industrial partner. IKEA contributes with Democratic Design principles, latest methods and tools as well as workshops and tutoring to train product development processes in real time, thus giving the students a hands-on opportunity to corporate projects and providing them the opportunity to implement knowledge and practices for IKEA's goal to create a better everyday life for the many people.
The uniqueness of the programme is that it has students from three different faculties - Business, Engineering and Design and brings together a diversity of competences, backgrounds and experiences to enable the innovation process in all its complexity to address the challenges that humankind is facing regarding environmental and social issues. Eventually, the program deepens students' understanding not only on knowledge and skills that influence the innovation process but also trains them in the professional way of working in a context where many fields of knowledge and practices are interacting.
