Course image Course 3.1 Introduction to Project Management

Nowadays, more and more activities are proclaimed as Projects. However, very little knowledge of business activities are conducted as a Project. A Project Management is a profession that has its own rules. Lack of understanding of Project Management and violations of design rules always lead to bad results. Most often, the Project is then not finished and all financial and other contributions are more or less thrown away. In the course, students will acquire knowledge about the key Project Management factors for success: understanding the environment of a Project, its life cycle, the role of a Project Management and most used Methodologies in Project Management (PMI, IPMA, PRINCE 2).

Course image Course 3.2 Risk Management

In the course, it will be demonstrated that unlike issues, which are certain to happen, Risks are events that could occur, and you may not be able to tell when. Students will become familiar with knowledge that a Risk is any Unexpected Event that might affect the people, processes, technology, resources and results - outcomes of the project involved in a Project. Project Risk Management remains a relatively undeveloped discipline, distinct from the Risk Management used by Operational, Financial and Underwriters' Risk Management in Business. If Risk Management is set up as a continuous, disciplined process of problem identification and resolution, then the system easily supplement other systems.

Course image Course 3.3. Financial management and Reporting

A financial management process is used to ensure that the project is completed within the allocated and approved budget.  The recommended process includes cost estimating, cost budgeting, cost control, monitoring, and reporting. Application of these principles should be tailored according to the size, complexity and importance of the project. Measure project performance against key project performance scope, schedule, quality, cost and risk criteria. Identify any deviations from the plan. Assess the impact of deviations on the project and overall program, and report results to key stakeholders. Recommend, implement and monitor remedial action, when required, in line with the program and project governance framework.

Course image Course 3.4 Communication and Dissemination, Capitalisation

The course main preoccupation is the formulation and implementation of the project’s communication and dissemination strategy in order to ensure smooth, timely, and high quality external, as well as internal communication.  It deals with the main objectives of internal and external project communication, communication activities, relevant stakeholders and target groups, methods, channels and instruments of communication and dissemination. The main outcome of the project communication planning is the Communication and Dissemination Plan which will be studied and practiced thoroughly throughout the course. Capitalization proved to be one of the main preoccupation of the EU funded programmes. During this course, students will get the insight into the main goals of DTP Capitalization Strategy, as well as the most effective examples of their achievement.

Course image Course 3.5 Exploitation and IPR

This course is designed to introduce two interconnected topics: intellectual property rights (IPRs) and the exploitation of project results.

Course image Course 5.1 Innovation Sandbox

In this course, participants gain an overview of the innovation models, strategies, and methods across sectors and genres. The course includes definitions and introductory materials for open, closed, and circular innovation. The innovation process is simplified in The Double Diamond approach from the UK Design Council. Methods that lead toward systemic sustainability are presented in The Circular Design Guide from the Ellen McArthur organization. A variety of other sources for leading innovation toward systemic sustainability are offered. The course provides a brief introduction to human-centered and nature-inspired innovation approaches that are then each deepened in the following innovation practice courses (5.2 and 5.3).

Course image Course 5.2 Introduction to Human-Centered Innovation Practice

In this practice-oriented course, participants experience the steps through The Double Diamond innovation process to which they were introduced in course 5.1 Innovation Sandbox. They engage deeply in the human-centered innovation process, moving from contextual (user-based) research for (re-)defining a chosen problem, through creating concepts and prototypes for potential solutions. In subsequent courses (5.4 and 5.5) participants have a chance to bring their invention from this course to market and develop a business around it.

Course image Course 5.3. Toward Sustainability: Introduction to Nature-Based Innovation Practice

In this practice-oriented course, participants experience the steps through The Double Diamond innovation process, in form of a nature-inspired analogy-based process. Both Biomimicry approaches will be introduced: Biology to Design, and Design Challenge to Biology. In particular, participants will practice the 4 stages of Biomimicry Thinking: scoping (defining function the innovation should fulfill in the end), discovering (nature-based scientific research searching for models in nature), creating concepts and prototyping, and evaluating the proposed innovation against the sustainability benchmark of the 26 Biomimicry Life Principles. Research steps include deep scientific research into general and subject-specific sub-categories of biology and/or ecology in order to discover the strategies nature uses for surviving and thriving. Systemic sustainability is guaranteed in this innovation process through the sustainability mandate that is built into the design process. In subsequent courses (5.4 and 5.5) participants have a chance to bring their innovation to market and develop a business opportunity for their innovation.

Course image Course 5.4 Bringing Innovation to Market

In this course participants create a strategic vision in form of a business model for an idea, concept, or invention completed during courses 5.2 Human-Centered Innovation Practice and/or 5.3 Nature-Based Innovation Practice (or taken from another case). They also develop implementation and business plans to bring their innovation to market through a series of cohesive phases.

Course image Course 5.5 Business Development

In this course participants consider how the business would be developed through the different phases of the business life cycle from inception to growth, maturity and decline. Further, as a next step, participants then put the idea in the context of circular economy and sustainability.
