Talent Co-Creation Labs

Talent Co-Creation Labs

Each of the Asian partner universities will establish a Talent Co-Creation Lab. The Labs involves the business, non-profit and public sector in the process of building students’ skills and knowledge. The Labs will manage a variety of activities, depending on the priorities of the hosting university, including:
  • establishing contacts and negotiating/planning cooperation with external stakeholders
  • initiation, design and implementation of live innovation and research projects
  • joint university-stakeholder development and delivery of training activities
  • regular consultation between the Labs’ staff and external stakeholders on needed skills and potential updates and additions to the regular university curriculum
  • maintaining contacts with employers in view of organizing internships and traineeships for students
  • provision of consultancy and support to faculty members wishing to integrate entrepreneurship and innovation training in study programmes or co-curricular activities
  • review and assessment of the impact of institutional activities, processes and decisions on graduates’ employability, and raise awareness of deficiencies and areas of improvement
  • organizing entrepreneurship or innovation training sessions for students in various disciplines.
Each Partner Country University has developed a framework that outlines the design and planned operations of its Talent Co-Creation Lab and clarifies the Lab’s place within the University structure, its functioning, management and activities, as well as applicable rules and regulations.
