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

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.
