Co-creative pop-up Laboratory

Karolinska Institutet offers a new way of learning
Co-creative pop-up Laboratory (Co-up lab) is new educational concept within the health context. It combines a physical creative space for co-creation of innovation with an educational programme for incubation of ideas. The Co-up lab is a mobile educational space that by “poping up” is utilising remote locations, taking health care education to end-users.

What is it?:
The Co-up lab incubation programme will run during the autumn at Karolinska Institutet. It is built on approx. 3 hours of lectures every second week, teamwork & coaching in between, getting hands-on experience and learning of entrepreneuring, as well as 4 Co-uplab events. 

The offer target students (PhDs, Masters and some cases Bachelors), interested in developing skills be it communication, business methodologies, storytelling, patient empowerment, design thinking or co-creation methodologies.  Teams will work and test ideas within the health care context and be coached along the way.
