A holistic program to foster innovation and entrepreneurial spirit at CRI Paris (V 1.2)
Step by step guidance to help CRI student and staff projects succeed.
CRI is a “Think and Do Tank” that focuses on new ways of learning, teaching, and research, stimulating collective intelligence to address great challenges of our time. We consider student and staff-driven projects key to developing problem-solving and entrepreneurial mindset at CRI.
Action at CRI is an exclusive student and staff focused program, aimed to foster internal experimentation and problem-solving capacity. Nevertheless, we invite the wider public to explore our methods, results, and stories, and to share their feedback. Most of our work is published online under creative commons.
The program will be launched and developed in 2 major stages. At first we focus on internal prototyping experience, offering training resources, project coaching, and prototyping facilities. In the second stage, for successful prototypes, we will focus on public launch, funding needs, and growth strategies.
First, we measure the total number of experiments by CRI students and staff, counting them as learning experiences and skills. Second, we document all the experiments and build a digital knowledge base. Third, for the successful prototypes, we will look at social impact, employment, and economic value.
