With your research activities you generate ideas constantly. But translating an idea into an application, innovation, product, or service is usually more challenging. In this workshop our experts share different models on how to transform your idea into a more concrete concept that can be turned into a solid business case.
What can you expect?
You will work on your idea and learn which steps you need to take. We will address the following questions: what problem or need does your idea solve? What are the benefits of your idea and for whom? Which parties and stakeholders do you need to collaborate with to develop your idea into a concrete concept?
