Abstract [en]

This paper presents results from a study of good examples of education for product innovation. A selection of exemplifying courses, modules, exercises and projects are presented. The selection is made to show examples of good practices which could easily be integrated into existing courses and programs. The Product Innovation Engineering program, PIEp, is the initiator of the study and the overall aim is to produce a state of the art report to be used in future course and program design in product innovation, within the Swedish PIEp network. In the study, three subject areas have been in focus: creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship. These focus areas have been applied primarily on higher engineering education and on programs of product development, engineering design and mechanical engineering. The study summarizes current status of research on education in creativity, creativity training and education in product innovation in general.
