Last October took place in VTT premises in Otaniemi (Finland) the first workshop of the BREAKit experiential learning itinerary. The itinerary is designed for creating and training T-shaped innovation champions trough practical train to develop such key skills and knowledge that will provide professionals capable to boost innovations, generate new business ideas and take them to the market.
The learning objectives in each participant have two sides:
–Self-development. It has to do with acquiring the capacity to take responsibilities, to take initiative and be proactive, to guide others, to work in teams, leading a project of personal/professional development itself, planning, learning to learn, connect and create networks, etc. This is itinerary is also a reflection time to think about the present and the future professional the participant wants to be.
–Ideation for industry and society. This is about building the capacity of transforming knowledge into innovations. Taking research into the markets demands that researchers train the capacity to see opportunities and to take ideas into action, prototyping solutions (products or services) that can be transferred to the market, experimenting in real context, with orientation to get results (Value for customers).
Serena Sgarioto, R&D Manager of Relight, presented the BREAKit project at ECOMONDO, the International Fair Trade for Material & Energy Recovery, which took place last week in Rimini (Italy). The presentation showed how BREAKit provides skills and offers new opportunities for researchers, PhDs and Post Doc students willing to explore their potential beyond technical skills and aiming to improve their skills on innovation & intrapreneurship, communication, business models, customer needs and markets.
