20 May Innovation Lab, Lima (PER)
Emprende UP is the Centre for Entrepreneurship of the Universidad del Pacífico (UP), 1 of Lima’s most prestigious universities.
Since early 2015, the UP adopted a large-scale innovation project throughout all its faculties, both on an academic level, as on administrative levels. The goal of the project is to create an entrepreneurial spirit, and to educate socially responsible entrepreneurs and captains of industry.
With this in mind, the so-called Innovation Lab was launched: a special space within the faculty from which innovation throughout the whole university is being stimulated.
Innovation Lab is a space that intends to inspire and to create. The objective for the first year 2015 is to facilitate the development of creativity and new ideas for students, academics and staff. Also it will be sharing innovation methodologies, like Design Thinking.
Innovation Lab is an interesting new initiative for the UP community to learn about creativity, idea generation and everything that has to do with innovation.
