BuILD is the meeting point for those interested in innovation making. It is the place, where innovation processes are unpacked with the aim to cultivate problem solving skills, design thinking, strategic and leadership skills and innovative concept development.
BuILD’s mission is to be the interface at which students, industry, and researchers meet. This is achieved through three mechanisms:
Challenges: Problem solving challenges and idea competitions are common Open Innovation concepts which BuILD facilitates.
Training: BuILD offers trainings for both students and practitioners hands-on and scientifically grounded.
Networking: From course projects to Industrial Phds, BuILD connects students and organization for joint research projects.
BuILD is short for ‘Business Innovation Lab’ – the ‘D’ is transformative. As innovation goes, many aspects influence it, from discovering the need for new innovative processes to developing and deploying innovative strategies. Sometimes the latter takes place in dungeons, other times in labs. Regardless of the location, BuILD is a place where innovation is created.
