Abstract of the webinar
So, you have an idea. Now what? The word “innovation” is one of the most overused buzzwords, but what does it mean? What makes an idea an innovative idea? And exactly how can you transform your ideas into something that creates value for society? Many students and graduates have great ideas and meaningful research across all disciplines and fields of study. However, it is also true that often they lack the support and mentorship to develop their ideas in a structured way. During the webinar, we will demystify innovation and unpack some of the skill sets, toolkits, and mindset that you need to create value and meaningful change. We will also expose you to some of the many opportunities that exist around you if you simply know what to look for, and if you make the effort to step outside of your comfort bubble and echo chamber to experience new ways of learning that are outside of your regular classroom or workplace.
Date of the webinar: 22 March 2023, Wednesday between 10:00 am – 11:30 (CET).
