InnoVersity: Innovation management as an element of the University of Paderborn's digitisation strategy: from the innovative idea to sustainable dissemination

Overview

The Paderborn University follows the mission statement of the "University of the Information Society" and already offers extensive digital offers and services to support research, studies and teaching, which are continuously improved and expanded. A major goal of the University's digitization strategy is to be able to react promptly to new challenges. In order to align the digitisation strategy to the dynamics of developments, a systematic innovation management should be designed with the help of "InnoVersity". The central concern here is to activate and use the innovation potential of students, teachers and researchers at the university.

Results

The analysis of the current status of innovation management in universities showed that there are very few studies on this area. The available studies clearly indicate the difficulty of innovation management at universities. The decentralised structure and the relative autonomy of the individual professors and working groups promote innovation activity, but this in turn prevents new concepts and methods from being anchored across the board. Due to the decentralised structure of the university, the Open Innovation approach was chosen in the project, which opens up the innovation process and thus allows a variety of different places for innovation. This approach supports the search for innovative teachers, but also students, for example through workshops, tool kits and the creation of communities/networking.


The ACTUAL analysis of digitisation projects at the University of Paderborn revealed a high level of innovation among teachers. Around 30 projects were identified. It became clear that the decentralised and inconsistent presentation of the projects on their own websites, subwebsites of the professorships and decentralised institutions is a challenge for innovation management. For the conception of a university-wide innovation management there are also consequences regarding the conception of a new IT infrastructure and services: Projects must be presented centrally and uniformly. The current status is documented under https://www.uni-paderborn.de/lehre/lehrinnovationen/lehrprojekte/.


With regard to student innovations, it has become clear that there is a great need here for support measures by the university, but at the same time implementation is not easy. Courses, information, incentives such as prizes, but also self-designed laboratory environments and carers have proven to be successful measures. Within the University of Paderborn, the digitisation strategy for teaching and studies has been further developed together with the results from InnoVersity.


The project results were regularly reported on at workshops and conferences. All results were summarised in a guideline with recommendations for action, which is currently being published.
