The course Innovation Design is organized in cooperation with CodeCamp:N, a young subsidiary of NÜRNBERGER Versicherung. The course is practice-oriented and aims to encourage students to solve real-life challenges that are provided by CodeCamp:N. The seminar follows a hands-on approach, where the students work in small teams and progress through a structured path e.g., from a fuzzy idea to a concrete prototype, where they are supported by professional material and templates as well as examples from practice. Throughout the various activities, the students acquire sound knowledge about lean and design thinking approaches to analyze, drive and design innovation-oriented projects and value-creation strategies. They also learn how to establish a convincing value proposition as well as business model to achieve a product-market fit, for example by integrating their customers along the innovation design process. Finally, the course aims to develop the presentation and storytelling skills of the students and enhance their pitching abilities.

The registration for this seminar is done on StudOn and will be open from 27th September, ending 11th October. The number of places is limited and participants will be drawn randomly from the students, who registered for this course in the mentioned registration period.

Furthermore, an examination application is obligatory via myCampus (in the examination registration period).

Further information will be provided during the KickOff.
