CLIC Project Booster

CLIC Project Booster is a time forced challenge driven innovation project design process

CLIC ProjectBooster process target is to create new challenge driven ideas to solve our systemic challenges. ProjectBooster utilizes online tools and face-to-face workshops to initiate thematic ideations for new projects. The process usually takes 2-3 months. The teams work with cross-sectoral challenges and define research questions. The companies and academia work side-by-side on the challenges at hand.
