Innovation Workshop 2018
Innovation Workshop is a unique month-long “boothcamp”-style course that unites the entire Skoltech incoming class with faculty and esteemed invited mentors to create a foundational experience in Entrepreneurship and Innovation (E&I) for all, as well as to instill a positive “can-do” teamwork attitude in the culture of the student cohort. Students engage in experiential project-based and inquiry-based learning to live through the entire technology innovation “cycle”, progressing from idea to product/prototype. This work is performed in cross-disciplinary teams that create real life experience of complex innovation project. In 2018, 24 esteemed businesspeople from Europe, Israel, USA, Australia, and Asia joined forces with dozens of Skoltech faculty to mentor student projects during the entire three weeks of project work.
The course is less about knowledge and more about developing skills and attitudes necessary to lead successful life in innovation.
