1 ECTS

Course parameters:
Language: English
Level of course: PhD course

Capacity limits: 16 participants

Objectives of the course: 

How innovation, entrepreneurship and interdisciplinarity can increase the impact of research and the researcher.

The goal of “Value of Science” is to create students and researchers that carry the skills needed to work within Open Science. To be able to come up with solutions to well-defined and validated needs. To communicate about that need and project in a way that includes other stakeholders and facilitates a “safe” interdisciplinary research and development team and work environment. To be able to increase the value proposition of not only their work but also their skills and thereby likelihood of job recruitment or project founding.      

The course will be using different learning approaches. Flipped classroom combined with in-class teaching and between classes tasks. All of the content in the course will be based on the individual student's own research project. The students will during the course engage in interactions with stakeholders from outside Aarhus University. Most of the deliverables will be made as presentations and students will practice communication and presentations skills. There will be an introduction to theories behind individual skills and personal profile and how teamwork and networking can support and affect the level of innovation and novelty in research projects.

INNO-X Healthcare is all about need-driven innovation. Our mission is to give individuals the tools and competencies they need to turn actual needs into research projects that create value. Through education and research, we strive to contribute to education, research and society as a whole. We wish to contribute to an industry that is more proficient in developing and commercializing products through a need-driven approach and we wish to give university students and researchers the competencies they need to integrate need-driven innovation in their daily work. INNO-X Healthcare is a unit at the Department of Clinical Medicine, Faculty of Health, Aarhus University. We operate in Denmark with an international perspective. We prioritize networking and we collaborate with different institutions across Aarhus University and in Denmark, with the private sector and with other university units from across the world.
 

Learning outcomes and competences:
At the end of the course, the student should be able to:

  • Use the Business Model Canvas to organize and plan progress of scientific projects
  • Use NABC to communicate and present research projects effectively to any type of audience – experts, non-experts, investors, grant-providers.
