OpenIDEO + University professors + graduate students + real clients = built outcomes.
Universities will have the ability to partner with OpenIDEO + a local client to adopt a winning concept and teach it as a practical subject for students to develop the concept further and take it into implementation. Through courses such as Architecture etc, students will have the opportunity to work on real life projects with a real client and a built outcome. OpenIDEO will provide some help along the way through perhaps providing some contacts to local clients if need be, an education kit (kind of like the HCD toolkit perhaps) or a few guest skype calls or video lectures.
What kind of social impact does this concept achieve?
through real life training students develop the skills, interest and experience to continue to work on projects which work towards social change in their career.
What skills are required to take this concept forward?
How do you envision this concept being supported financially?
