Innovation + Incubation Environments

Innovation and Incubation Environments

Tomorrow’s global citizens are entering higher education today with words like “explore,” “hack” and “prototype” embedded in their vocabulary – fueling a powerful movement toward learning by creating.

A number of colleges and universities are leading the way as they introduce learning facilities billed as “innovation + incubator + maker centers.” These centers focus on breaking down departmental silos and encouraging multi-disciplinary inquiry to foster industry partnerships, fully leveraging available grants and funding for research. Advancing these new models allow universities to recruit fresh talent, establish new partnerships for success and promote an environment where emerging leaders can explore solutions to the complex social challenges of our time.

Innovation, incubation, partnership, entrepreneurship – these are the qualities re-shaping the educational landscape.

Business schools are becoming immersed in design thinking; libraries are not just “delivering” service, but becoming partners in research and the creation of new knowledge; and educational institutions are active collaborators with the world of industry in addressing real-world issues.

We’d Love to Hear From You.

Our integrated Education Practice is ready to support your learning mission and share the innovative ways we have helped others meet the evolving educational landscape.
