    InnoWeit- from innovation to vocational education
Hyperlink
Comments/Description
    If you want to be successful nowadays, you have to be inventive – and that can be learned. This is why researches from Ruhr-University Bochum – the Institute for Work Science are developing the programme for further education “Innoweit – von der Innovation zur beruflichen Weiterbildung“ (“InnoWeit – from the innovation to the vocational further education“). The aim is to transfer the proven method InnoKenn and the corresponding training in various EU partner countries. Employees of companies in Bulgaria, Greece, Lithuania, Hungary and Spain can participate, thereby learning how to discover new products as well as advance services and working methods.

    2inno.eu – DO innovation now!

Comments/Description
    Following the research undertaken for the needs analysis by all core partner organizations, and at the basis of country specific training materials currently available in partner countries searched and collated by the partners, we came to the conclusion that most of the training offers provided in the area of innovation management / implementation of innovation strategy & processes, addresses high skilled experts and people in tertiary education. These trainings are mostly centralised, on-site and very expensive and – one of the major problems – often based on a very theoretical and complex level.
    Whereas multinational companies are supported by specialists (via their R&D departments, innovation assistants or other experts in the field), SMEs/MEs risk to be excluded from implementing important innovation measures. As stated above, the European Commission recognized this danger and implemented various initiatives to help small companies in the field of innovation (management). With our "2inno.eu" project we would like to contribute to the aims defined by the Commission and to the objectives stated in the Lisbon Strategy.

    The theme of "Innovation" is an important topic in the study of economics, business, entrepreneurship, design, technology, sociology, and engineering. In our society, innovation aids in comfort, convenience, and efficiency in everyday life. There is a huge amount of tools, methods and theoretical material available on the theme Innovation (Management). And: all this knowledge is easily accessible. But why is it – especially for small businesses – so difficult to put "innovation" into practice? We assume that there is a dangerous gap between the knowledge you need and the concrete action to "Do" innovation. The main aim of our project is to fill this gap and to help owners of SME to find their own "culture of innovation". The way we suggest in the 2inno.eu project is the DUI-mode: "learning by doing, using and interacting mode". Many scholars claim that there is a great bias towards the "science and technology mode" (S&T-mode), while the "learning by doing, using and interacting mode" (DUI-mode) is widely ignored. For an example, that means you can have the better high tech or software, but there are also crucial learning tasks important for innovation. But these measurements and research are rarely done. This is exactly the point of departure for our 2inno.eu project – Do Innovation now!
