Start Date: October 11, 2016

End Date: October 11, 2016

Venue: Children's Cancer Hospital, Cairo, Egypt


Presenter: Professor Dr. Evangelos A. Afendras

Intended Audience
Research staff and managers at universities, hospitals and research institutes who have the responsibility for designing research projects and constructing proposals in response to calls from various external and internal funding bodies.

Course Outline
Innovation and Innovativeness are extremely important in today’s world as things change rapidly, from ideas to gadgets to microorganisms. In teaching, the trend has been to employ new approaches, not only in using new technology for learning, but also in using new approaches to organise the delivery or facilitation of learning, approaches known as Inquiry (including Project) Based, Action Based or Experience Based.  Research is much closer to innovation as its main objective is to produce innovation. This is also the case in Medicine and the Health Sciences.

Description
Innovation and Innovativeness are extremely important in today’s world as things change rapidly, from ideas to gadgets to microorganisms. In teaching, the trend has been to employ new approaches, not only in using new technology for learning, but also in using new approaches to organise the delivery or facilitation of learning, approaches known as Inquiry (including Project) Based, Action Based or Experience Based.  Research is much closer to innovation as its main objective is to produce innovation. This is also the case in Medicine and the Health Sciences.

It is therefore essential that creative/innovative ideas be used in the process of applying for financial support to carry out research, in a sense, innovations about innovating.

In this Workshop we will explore the nature of creativity and innovation, and their relation, and will look at outstanding cases from an array of various areas of knowledge and practice.

We will then explore some techniques for training on innovation (eg morphological or attribute analysis) and apply them to the preparation of Health Research Project Proposals.

The rest of the session will be dedicated to identifying a theme in Health Research and looking at it from an innovative perspective.

Some related material (it could be given as reference material, trainees could also access individually).
