Description

The micro perspective looks at how people become more innovative and emphasizes on creativity as a major source for innovation. Departing from this micro perspective we look how individual behavior aggregates to the macro level and study innovation from an organizational and economic system perspective. The course is characterized by a wide set of different meeting formats.
