Course specific prerequisites

Only students who are admitted to the Entrepreneurship and Business Design program, the ICM-track, are qualified to take the course, due to the strong integration with the lab-based pedagogy of the program. The student must also have passed the courses CIP017, CIP058, CIP011, CIP061 and TEK211 from the first year of the Entrepreneurship and Business Design program in order to be qualified to take the course.


The purpose of the course is to give the student the skills and tools necessary to work practically with early innovation and venture projects, with a particular focus on the following areas: early-stage R&D, early-stage technology ventures, and need-based innovation challenges.

Learning outcomes (after completion of the course the student should be able to)

- Develop demonstrated skill in identifying and assessing potential intellectual assets
- Demonstrate ability to develop value visions and analyse claims around intellectual assets
- Develop demonstrated skills in analysing external knowledge and technology markets
- Develop demonstrated skills in applying design thinking methods and tools in need-based innovation processess
- Develop demonstrated skills in evaluating the commercial potential of early-stage innovations and ventures
- Develop demonstrated skills in developing or visualizing hybrid utilization strategies
- Demonstrate ability to make ethically responsible choices when packaging or visualizing intellectual assets into physical, virtual, or intellectual properties or services


The course is built around seminars that aim to teach students the theory and practice of intellectual asset analysis in the context of early innovation and venture projects. Students will be given specific assignments that test and develop their understanding and application of the tools and approaches taught in the course in the context of real or hypothetical cases. The students may also have the opportunity to work with real innovation projects related to particularly one of the following practical areas: early-stage R&D, early-stage technology ventures, and need-based innovation challenges.


The course will consist of a series of seminars together with and a number of individual and group hand-ins. The course may also be strongly linked to real life innovation projects where students will work together in supervised teams to conduct specific analytical and development activities.


See separate list.


Students are graded based on their participation in the seminars and performance on individual and group assignments, in the form of written hand-ins and oral presentations. Mandatory attendance and active participation is required at the seminars.
