Creative IDEAS

The Creative IDEAS project is dedicated to impact generation through the design of innovative and highly interactive approaches, processes and tools for knowledge sharing.

Our approach to knowledge sharing is characterised by a participatory, co-creational understanding of KE research. Here academics and KE professionals use their expertise to design and provide a flexible structure and safe environment in which participant experts feel enabled to share relevant and create new knowledge across organisational boundaries.

To date we have supported over 100 small and large companies and public organisations in collaboration for innovation.  Activities focus on the facilitation of interactions across organisational boundaries and sectors with the aim to raise awareness about differences in organisational cultures and processes and how they might affect innovation and change processes.

The project is part of the fourth round of the Higher Education Innovation Fund (HEIF 4).
