Project TACIT (Teaching and Coaching Innovation & Entrepreneurship InnovaTively) at HHL Leipzig Graduate School of Management.
How do we improve on current innovation management and entrepreneurship teaching and training to enable value creation from good ideas?
Together with a dedicated consortium of industrial partners and academics, the Center for Leading Innovation & Cooperation (CLIC) at HHL Leipzig Graduate School of Management is about to answer this question through the recently initiated European research project TACIT (Teaching and Coaching Innovation & Entrepreneurship InnovaTively).
Working jointly with the project partners, (among them Lufthansa Systems, Lego, Nokia Networks, BMW, AachenMünchener, Torbay Hospital and several European universities) the HHL researchers embark on their mission to provide Europe’s higher education institutions and economy with a profound open-source toolbox and robust methodology for teaching innovation effectively.
“The wide range of experience and research support required for developing innovation and entrepreneurship skills lies outside the scope of any single institution. What we need is a pan-European knowledge alliance to foster open innovation,” says Dr. Claudia Lehmann of CLIC.
At Lego, the fast growing largest toy manufacturer in the world, to be innovative and to be creative is a natural part of the firm’s DNA. As Gaute Munch, Director Product Technology Frontend of Lego, says, “What we experience is that innovation happens between people. You can say that the raw material of good innovation is all the knowledge of the people that are involved in the innovation process.
Everyone can participate in doing innovation but innovation making is not necessarily something everyone is an expert in. Innovation is a method that you need to master. It is therefore very much about facilitation, driving processes, conducting workshops and involving the right people.” Lego is driving both incremental as well as more radical innovation.
The company takes part in the TACIT project because it is always looking for interesting partners that it can do innovation with or that inspires it. “We see it as a real opportunity for us to exchange ideas and thoughts with other companies or academic institutions regarding different innovation methods,” says Mr. Munch. The Lego director is personally most interested in the innovation methods related to the question how one can better involve people in the innovation process, for example innovation theatre or story telling.
With a project duration of three years, TACIT receives a total of EUR 1 million in funding from the European Union’s Erasmus+ program with the aim of developing and testing mechanisms to build implicit knowledge in individuals, enabling them to apply innovation and entrepreneurship successfully and thus support change in their organizations.
The Center for Leading Innovation & Cooperation (CLIC) is a joint initiative driven by scientists from Friedrich-Alexander Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU), HHL Leipzig Graduate School of Management and Technische Universität München (TUM) which is chaired by HHL.
CLIC considers itself as think tank in the field of managing innovation in enterprises and markets. In doing so the CLIC pools the experience and expertise of a strong international network consisting of institutions and experts in the branch of innovations research. http://www.clicresearch.org

A research team of the institute of semiconductor optics and functional interfaces (IHFG) of the University of Stuttgart experimentally verified the generation of polarization-entangled photon pairs in the emission wavelength range of the telecom C-band. The generation of entangled photons, i.e. a non-classical phenomenon which “bounds” the states of two different entities, is a cornerstone for the realization of quantum networks.
Quantum dots are one of the most prominent and promising candidates as non-classical light sources applied in quantum information technology. They have been...

Controlling electronic current is essential to modern electronics, as data and signals are transferred by streams of electrons which are controlled at high speed. Demands on transmission speeds are also increasing as technology develops. Scientists from the Chair of Laser Physics and the Chair of Applied Physics at Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) have succeeded in switching on a current with a desired direction in graphene using a single laser pulse within a femtosecond ¬¬ – a femtosecond corresponds to the millionth part of a billionth of a second. This is more than a thousand times faster compared to the most efficient transistors today.
Graphene is up to the job
