Abstract [en]

This article summarizes efforts undertaken within the Swedish Product Innovation Engineering program (PIEp), in the area of education for product innovation. A key aspect of the program is to create a systematic change in higher engineering education in product development, to move toward a focus on innovative product development, where entrepreneurship thrives and student ideas are brought to reality. Examples include the introduction of new undergraduate and graduate courses in innovation engineering, close integration between project courses offered at PIEp partner universities, joint research projects, and workshops that allow entrepreneurs and companies to better utilize student ideas and projects. During the first years of PIEp, in the build-up phase, a large effort has been placed on creating an international network of 'innovation friends'. The founders strongly believe that the 'wheel should not be invented again - rather that there is an obligation to search for, find, and gather all relevant actors within this field, on a global arena. Within the rather limited network of partners and friends established this far, several common interest areas have been explored, including activities such as university-spanning workshops and collaborative projects.
