The programme has been designed to take participants through a ‘full’ cycle of innovation: from idea generation to prototyping. The design is hands-on and draws on the latest so-called human centered design thinking. We will generate solutions to participants’ actual challenges in a fast-paced event that  includes tips and guidance for those who wish to replicate the training within their teams.



Upon sucessful completeion of this 2-day programme the participant will:

  • Be able to apply the innovation process and tool box to their ‘own’ innovation projects
  • Be able to conduct an innovation training (if participants bring some facilitation experience to the trainiing)
