Project acronym: E-LAB

E-Labs are creative physical centres that provide opportunities for finding solutions to challenges in society. E-Labs offer a unique educational experience by connecting students with businesses, researchers and innovators so they can learn to master the craft of entrepreneurship and innovation through examining and analysing real-life cases. By creating a strong European network between E-Lab partners, the project aims to spread and integrate a culture of innovation and entrepreneurship through challenge-driven education. In 2018, UCPH joined forces with the Capital Region of Denmark, the Technical University of Denmark, the Municipality of Copenhagen and the University College of Copenhagen to develop an online platform where cases, practices, models and texts about health innovation could be shared. The result of this initiative is www.cobox.dk, a platform to support and inspire current and future collaboration between educational institutions and the healthcare sector by spreading knowledge, experiences and examples of health innovation in teaching across the respective organisations.
