Workshop Successful Collaboration between Academia-University-Startups

This is a workshop to learn about becoming a powerful collaborator by improving your Collaboration Leadership skills and your Collaboration Team performance.

It is impossible to do innovation alone, and hence collaboration is critical to make it work and to bring innovation to the market and cause a positive impact. 

The collaboration journey is a structure, a transparent and clear process that shows which phase you are in in the course of a collaboration. It gives you a guide to what you have to do in each phase, which contracts are needed, which information is required and how to communicate to be able to go to the next phase. Since we are talking about innovation, we are dealing with the subjects of uncertainty, risk and trust. You can only succeed if you are transparent, clear, honest and every “collaborator” knows the current phase, and what information is needed. 

Collaborating for innovation is an activity that can comprise co-brainstorming, co-creation, co-designing, co-researching, co-developing, co-prototyping, co-implementing, co-executing, co-going-to-market, co-adopting with experts, academics, startups, investors and other types of partners you can imagine in your value chain and ecosystem.
