Here you are given the opportunity to collaborate with other LiU students, from various programs and faculties, in an interdisciplinary project group. All project groups in the course work with real-life challenges directly from the region's trade & industry and the public sector. All challenges have connections to the UN's sustainable development goals, which can result in sustainable solutions not only making a difference at the regional level but also nationally and globally.
Cross-disciplinary communication and collaboration form an essential part of the course and are practised in group work and through the "pitches", which are both parts of the course's examination and part of the presentation directed to the external parties.
We emphasize the importance of thinking sustainably and responsibly throughout the innovation process. As a student, you are also given the opportunity to create networks for your future and develop your personal and professional skills. The inGenious course, which aims to promote entrepreneurial ability, is in many ways practical. Here you can turn your theoretical knowledge into practice. Your competence in the project group is important. You may be the only one in the group who has knowledge and expertise in a particular area. In that way, you will learn a lot from each other.
The course is a collaboration between LiU and Almi East Sweden AB, a subsidiary of Almi Företagspartner i Östergötland AB. LiU is responsible for the academic elements (seminars, workshops) and assessment. At the same time, Almi East Sweden AB is responsible for contacting companies in the region, designing challenges in consultation with the companies, and is responsible for the pitch training. The students have access to facilitators from Almi East Sweden AB during the whole course, which they can turn to. Our student groups own their solutions. Almi East Sweden AB is an important legal party in case companies want to buy a student group's results. That's why it's inGenious!
