How to Innovate NOW Workshop Monday, May 4, 2020

56pm CET (Switzerland) 

We have a whole new Digital Imperative in our companies and organizations brought on by the coronavirus pandemic. But launching an innovative product is always an experiment in search of a business model. So how do you ensure success? Instead of trying to immediately generate revenue using their existing sales force, companies should follow a market development framework designed to discover the purpose for which customers will use the product and how they will buy it.

Led by Jan Beránek, CEO of U+, and Sean Sheppard, Founder of GrowthX, this workshop will walk us through a framework for innovation execution that you can use in your development efforts. Establishing a functioning learning organization to test hypotheses with customers and iterate based on feedback allows you to find your truth faster about where your proposed product fits in the market (if at all).

Participation is limited. Please register to attend the workshop on Zoom.

Project „We Scientists Shape Science“: Small changes today for better research tomorrow

What do the publishing system, research integrity, work-life balance, academic recognition, equal opportunities, promoting team science, implementing open data policies have in common? They are all part of research culture! Our modern academic system can foster doubtful practices. Nevertheless, positive change in our working environments is possible. The Swiss Academy of Sciences has produced the We Scientists 2035 workshop package to help generate new ideas about how research culture can change. The package is freely available for you to download.
