The current Corona (Covid19 / SARS-CoV-2) situation also affects the FabLab at the Schumpeter Laboratory for Innovation. As part of the Graz University of Technology, we have to follow its rules of conduct and the hygiene concept. In order to be able to offer OpenDays & Trainings again we have to make some mandatory changes in our processes and the access rules for the Schumpeter Laboratory for Innovation and its FabLab.

Changes & Rules of Conduct

are expected to take place again from 1st of OCTOBER

Product Innovation

In order to develop and design new products, the institute has introduced the course Product Innovation (formerly: Product Innovation Project). It is a unique course in Austria, inspired by the one-year program in Design Thinking at the of Stanford University in California (USA). According to the concept of Experience Based Learning, the course offers students the opportunity to work on real-life tasks directly provided by industry partners. In addition to the task, the students receive a project budget to implement the best of their numerous ideas. Some of these ideas have already led to new products and even patents. During a full academic year the students work in teams on the task of the industrial partner and go through a complete product development process throughout that time. In addition to the opportunity to further develop their knowledge and soft skills, the students gain practical experience and ECTS credits for their studies. The industry partners in turn make contact with highly motivated students and potential future employees.
