Linköping University arranges the inGenious course [799G52] with Almi East Sweden AB, a subsidiary of Almi Företagspartner i Östergötland AB. The course connects students with companies and the public sector in the region - everything in an international environment signified by creativity and entrepreneurship.
This cross-disciplinary course is unique to the Swedish educational system. We want to promote students' entrepreneurial ability and make it possible to acquire professional skills, such as collaborating with other professions and becoming confident and effective in pitching in front of an audience. We do that by using challenge-based learning (CBL). The course also provides the opportunity to make important contacts and build networks.
In this course, students are given the opportunity to collaborate with other students from all faculties in interdisciplinary project groups and together tackle challenges from trade and industry and the public sector in the region. At the end of the course, the students pitch their solutions to challenge providers and other stakeholders.
The project groups own their solutions. This gives opportunities to sell the solution to a challenge provider, to a stakeholder, or to develop it further, with support from Student Innovation by LiU or Lead. That’s why it’s inGenious!
