Supporting innovation capacity in local communities through education and innovation spaces.
As part of an ongoing collaboration between UCT, South Africa and Global Development Hub at KTH, Sweden, we are exploring different ways to support global sustainable development. In this effort, we are exploring how to develop online courses to train university students in addressing real-life sustainability challenges in Cape Town townships. The ambition is to create courses where students from different disciplines collaborate with the local community to identify and create innovative solutions and business models that are addressing pressing needs.
This workshop session will explore online education in connection to innovation and entreprenurship spaces, for example living labs.
How can physical and digital spaces improve our students innovation and entrepreneurial competence?
How can we build innovation capacity to address pressing needs in local communities characterized by high levels of inequalities and low levels of integration?
The purpose is to investigate the interest for collaboration and participation in
a) online challenge driven education (CDE) courses in the area of innovation and entrepreneurship;
b) investigating how physical spaces supporting innovation and entrepreneurship that address pressing needs in local areas, can be developed.
We warmly welcome participants from different academic disciplines and participants outside academia that have an interest in the overall question!
