Participatory Product Innovation (7.5 ECTS)

The goal of the course is to gain knowledge about product innovation theories and practice. Together with the theory, a product innovation project is carried out with the goal of going from needs to prototype with commercialization potential. This requires a course setup with at least 5 participants. The course participants will then in parallel with building theory also practice the process of going from Needfinding to commercialisation, via stages like user studies, design studies, creative workshops, concept design, detail design, prototyping, plant setup, market plans etc.
