ACADEMIC CREATIVITY LABS
TRAINING AND WORKSHOPS FOR ACADEMICS TO COME UP WITH MORE & BETTER RESEARCH IDEAS
Creativity is a skill that can be learned and a process that can be managed.
is to train academics in ideation tooling, adapted to the specific context of academia. These tools have been successfully used in companies, governments, consortia, … for +20 years.
Good and creative research ideas are central to the success of every academic. But finding such ideas is a struggle for many researchers, especially for those early in their academic career. Moreover, many stop ideating after their first idea. Ideation tools can help researchers to come up with more and better research ideas.
Next, in many businesses and governments the creation of ideas is not done by individuals. They foster collaborative brainstorming and sharing of ideas with others in the organization. Our collaborative ideation workshops will help your department, faculty or consortium to kick-off impactful joint research projects.
Finally, great research ideas often come with a business opportunity. With our strong expertise in coaching innovation teams in research-oriented companies, we train and help academics to create ideas with valorization potential and turn their research ideas into value for costumers and society.
