The INNOSIGN UNIVERSITY concept is a non-profit university of applied sciences project for start-ups, entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs. Our philosophy is not only to launch a new type of university, but also to establish completely new teaching methods. Classical lectures are a thing of the past at the IU: Workshops, case studies and independent projects, supported by our outstanding coaches, lecturers and professors, are an essential part of our visionary teaching concepts.

Over the past 60 years, the number of innovative ideas in Germany and Europe has declined significantly, and groundbreaking successes have been scattered. The uncertain, dynamic markets and the associated challenges are undermining current methodological approaches. This is particularly evident in the current higher education system. In this respect, „Know- What“ instead of „Know-How“ can no longer be described as „state of the art“.

Furthermore, the interplay of theory and practice must be given even greater importance. Start-up companies live the drive that is still lacking in this intensity in corporations and SMEs. The aim is to redefine the entrepreneurial spirit in this environment, to make coura- geous decisions and to set the course for a competitive future.

Our knowledge society must change in order to be prepared for future challenges. In this con- text, education must be an investment in the future. The scientific-practical education must be a WIN-WIN situation that turns students into creative managers and thus opens up additional innovation potential for companies.

A new era of studying can now begin…
