The dCCDF project will address the following 2 factors by developing a training for both HE and industry-based students to raise their entrepreneurial awareness and promote bilateral knowledge transfer through collaboration between the two groups of learners.
1. HE graduates need more than just their degree to access employment
2. The potential for knowledge transfer between HE and industry is not fully realized.
Concurrent design (CCD) is a well-structured process method for improving cooperation in groups representing different interests such as:
• Participants in a project, including various university departments and companies.
• A group creating an entrepreneurship course including teachers, employers and students
• Students in an entrepreneurship course where they will link the interests of universities and companies in preparing a business plan.
CCD is therefore THE process tool
• For our project management
• Entrepreneurship course development and
• The tool for students to use within the course
In a globalised world it is increasingly routine to collaborate online therefore the proposed training will be offered online. In the UnderstandIT project, involving some of the dCCDF project partners, the highly structured synchronous CCD process was adapted for distributed teams. which the xx project will use in the three areas listed above.
The training will be
- offered online
- comprise a mixture of HE and industry-based learners
- focus first on personal development plans
- require small groups of learners to become familiar with their respective institutions’ innovations
- progress to a business development plan
- include an internal dissemination plan &
- end with a peer-reviewed online presentation
HE and industry-based learners will be grouped together across Europe and will use the dCCD process. Their plans will use the Osterwalder business model framework which has been developed for both personal and business development.
