European INNOLABS Student Innovation Bootcamp

INNOLABS is searching for students to generate innovative ideas to solve challenges. If you are student of an ICT, Health, Bio, Medical science or Business-related curriculum and eager to make a difference or to gain experience from the healthcare business point of view, join our Innovation Bootcamp (IBC).

In collaboration with SMEs (Small and Medium Enterprises), which act as challenge providers, INNOLABS will execute a SME driven Boot Camp to interact with students. The challenge providers will be a mix of selected SMEs whom are facing challenges in their daily business and are looking for innovative solutions. You will be briefed about the challenges, what’s already happening and then receive high-quality training about the creative thinking process and idea building and work with the SMEs and other students in your team to generate ‘out of the box’ solutions.

Experience the vibrant reality of cooperating with SMEs and students across disciplines and cultural backgrounds.

The IBC is an opportunity to get guidance, come up with new solutions and meet the ‘challenge providers’ whom might be interested to follow up with your team and give you the opportunity to develop your idea further or implement it on the ground, via an in-house training.

The Bootcamp starts with a two days exercise to generate solutions to the SMEs’ challenges, following a service jam concept. You will receive support in terms of persona modelling, design thinking methodology and others to help you structure your thinking and unleashing creativity. Further, the challenge providers will be present during the event to allow a better understanding of the challenges to be solved.

After those two days you have about two weeks to refine your solution with your team. The IBC ends then with an Executive pitch where the teams present their solutions to the SMEs and a jury. At this stage, the teams with the best solution for each challenge are selected to engage in an in-house training with the respective SMEs.

The winning teams will then compete for a final prize for the best performing.

The INNOLABS IBC will be held in Oslo, Norway during May 14 and 15 2018.

The INNOLABS team encourages participants to come with an open mind, ready to explore a particular challenge and ideate potential solutions which can help solve the SMEs challenges and add value.
