Welcome to a new way of learning:

Co-Up Lab is new educational concept within the health context. It combines a physical creative space for co-creation of innovation with an educational programme for incubation of ideas. The Co-up lab is a mobile educational space that by “poping up” is utilising remote locations, taking health care education to end-users.

What is it?:

The Co-Up Lab incubation programme will run during the autumn. It is built on approx. 3 hours of lectures every second week, teamwork & coaching in between, getting hands-on experience and learning of entrepreneuring, as well as 4 Co-up lab events.

The offer target students (PhDs, Masters and some cases Bachelors), interested in developing skills be it communication, business methodologies, storytelling, patient empowerment, design thinking or co-creation methodologies. Teams will work and test ideas within the health care context and be coached along the way.
