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

Plant pollen and fungal spores can be found at variable heights in the air, even at elevations up to 2000 meters. This is the conclusion of a report by researchers of Helmholtz Zentrum München and Technical University of Munich together with Greek colleagues, which was published in the journal ‘Scientific Reports’. Hitherto it was assumed that such allergens are mainly present close to where they are released, namely near ground level.
One in every five Europeans currently already suffers from allergies – and the trend is increasing. Plant pollen and fungal spores contribute considerably to...
By comparison, a blink lasts a lifetime – atoms can rearrange themselves within one 350 quadrillionths of a second. As reported in the latest issue of the prestigious journal Nature, scientists at the Center for Nanointegration (CENIDE) at the University of Duisburg-Essen (UDE), together with their colleagues from the University of Paderborn, have been able to observe the movement of a one-dimensional material in real-time. Their research confirms that the acceleration of the atoms could leave even a Porsche standing.
Everything that surrounds us in our everyday life is three-dimensional, no matter how small: salt crystals, pollen, dust – even aluminium foil has a certain...
The Institute of Semiconductor Technology and the Institute of Physical and Theoretical Chemistry, both members of the Laboratory for Emerging Nanometrology (LENA), at Technische Universität Braunschweig are partners in a new European research project entitled ChipScope, which aims to develop a completely new and extremely small optical microscope capable of observing the interior of living cells in real time. A consortium of 7 partners from 5 countries will tackle this issue with very ambitious objectives during a four-year research program.
To demonstrate the usefulness of this new scientific tool, at the end of the project the developed chip-sized microscope will be used to observe in real-time...
Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.
The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.
Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...
