Our DICAMP Mini-Conference “The present & the future” on April 12 at Ecole Nationale d’Ingénieurs de Tunis (ENIT) was well attended by DICAMP students, European and Tunisian teachers and project partners as well as Tunisian companies. The main idea of the conference was to develop a sustainability strategy for the master programme Innovation Management since the EU funding is running out in October 2014. Therefore Prof. John Bessant spoke about today’s challenges along the innovation frontier and the importance and chances of innovation and its management especially for Tunisian companies. Additionally the master programme was introduced while presenting ways to link DICAMP to Tunisian industrial needs. Also DICAMP students had the opportunity to talk about their experiences and highlights with the programme. All conference contributions proved the success and significance of the master programme for Tunisia.

Our DICAMP spring school started with module 2 Innovation Strategy which was taught from April 8-10 by Prof. Ralf Reichwald, Dr. Nizar Abdelkafi and Dr. Anna Trifilova. During the three days the students experienced a combined course where the teachers were applying different interactive teaching and learning methods. The course focused on organizational forms, new institutional economics, networking organizations and organizational theory which was supported by case studies, group work and a role game. On the last day of teaching every student received a DICAMP package filled with a DICAMP T-Shirt, individual DICAMP business cards and the two DICAMP brochures. On April 13 Dr. Allen Alexander from the University of Exeter taught module 4 Strategic Selection where the students learned how organizations select their innovation projects and activities. Besides a closer look on the innovation process, the course also dealt with stakeholder motives, the effect of strategic selection, risk analysis and evaluating uncertainty. The last module within the DICAMP spring school was module 7 Building the Innovative Organization which was taught by Dr. Anna Trifilova and Romy Hilbig from April 15-17. By playing a business game students were asked to establish cooperation in order to work more productively. The aim of the course was to indicate the importance of communication and cooperation between all employees and departments of an organization for making the innovation process successful.
