Intended learning outcomes

After the completion of this course, participants will be able to: 
 

  • Discuss and analyze the process of innovation, through the phases of search, select, implement and capturing the value. 
  • Analyze State-of-the-Art and merging technology in Research and Development to identify opportunities for innovation
  • Analyze drivers of technical change and industrial transformation
  • Translate drivers for change into an business opportunity
  • Understand how the development of sustainable energy systems and energy combines mobilizes opportunities for innovation

Course main content

  • The course is an advanced 2nd level course in sustainable energy engineering, with special focus on identifying the opportunities for innovation that lie inherent in the development of sustainable energy systems in general, and advanced energy combines in particular.
  • Advanced state-of-the-art assessment of merging technologies is coupled with analysis using the tools of industrial dynamics and evolutionary theories for discussing and analyzing opportunities for innovation in the field. 
  •  The course consists of a few key lectures, with student-centered seminars carrying the bulk of the learning process in discussing and analyzing.
  • A project is introduced in the beginning of the course, and follows the course period throughout. Through the projects, the tools mentioned above are practiced on real cases, such that upon completion of the project, the course objectives are reached.  
  •  A final exam asses the level of knowledge and skills achieved, serving the main basis for the course grade (beyond pass).
