Unit Description

At the beginning of this 'unit' candidates satisfy the UNE 'Confirmation of Candidature' process in order to commence their work on creating, researching and reflecting upon their innovation in context. A single or multiple product(s)/innovation(s) may be involved depending on their scale. The Innovation Portfolio Project will normally comprise three distinct but closely inter-linked outcomes, supported by empirical evidence and arguments: (1) Innovation Conception and Development History; (2) Innovation Impact and Change Report; and (3) Reflections and Anticipations. The portfolio will be examined in a similar fashion as the PhD/EdD/DHSM.
