InnoCube executive training


2020 has accelerated global trends, based on technology, digitalization and the search for sustainable local solutions. Intangible assets have become essential. The latest crisis has taught us to be proactive and turn current challenges into opportunities.

We aim not only to inform you about the latest developments in innovation law, management and the sociology of innovation. We also aim to anticipate.

We believe that this is the time for everyone to improve and acquire new skills. In their field of expertise and beyond. Because we are deeply convinced that the skills needed to meet the needs of today and tomorrow are transdisciplinary. Only this approach gives us the agility needed to perform sustainably.  

To support this transition, the University of Neuchâtel (UNINE) and its Master in Innovation are launching a series of intensive masterclasses and webinars designed to unveil the practical aspects of innovation management and law and its impact on society - both locally and internationally.
