The online course in Innovation and Entrepreneurship is an integral component of the DISCO Training Program, which is designed for students, academic staff, and non-academic employees in higher education institutions. Its principal goal is to promote entrepreneurship by developing digital innovation, creatidvity, sustainable ideas, and global business services across diverse sectors and disciplines. The course emphasises academic entrepreneurship, digital inventions, sustainable innovations, and Global Business Services by leveraging pedagogical content from Norway, Poland, Switzerland, and Ukraine.
The course covers foundational concepts, practical applications, and real-life examples of innovation and entrepreneurship through MOOC-based lectures and activities. Participants develop their ideas from inception to public presentation through online consultation and oversight. By harnessing synergies amongst the participating entities, valuable feedback and mentorship services are provided to improve inclusiveness, diversity, and broader access to support. The course ensures a future-ready learning environment by providing participants with critical information, skills, and mindsets for sustainable innovation and global business services, benefiting both individual growth and the broader ecosystem.
This course was devised as a part of the project Developing Innovative Sustainable Cooperation Opportunities (DISCO), funded by the European Union under the programme EIT HEI Initiative (European Institute of Innovation & Technology Higher Education Institutions Initiative).
