Course Description

This Seasonal School addresses some of the main issues regarding innovation management and knowledge exchange (including technology transfer) with a broad vision which includes sustainability and health management. The specific approach of this Seasonal School (1) aims at arousing the interest of participants from different scientific disciplines and (2) focuses on the goal of contributing to the common good (at the level of universities, companies, territories). The theories and tools for managing innovation will be presented and discussed not so much with the objective of creating competitive advantage, but as a support to the ability to launch new initiatives of various kinds aimed at creating value for the society as a whole, especially in coherence with the need to rethink the current capitalism system. Emphasis will be given to the role of purposedriven organizations, their capacity to trigger architectural innovation to address societal problems, as well as on the emergence of new ways of interacting with social, environmental and cultural contexts. In this regard, some paradigms that are today at the center of the debate on the transformation of the economy which is urgently needed will be presented, such as those of the creation of shared value, integral ecology and civil economy. The role of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals will also be addressed.
