In order to evaluate the CCF in practice, pilot implementations have been executed in various universities and at various educational levels (Bachelor level, Master level, PhD, executive training). The pilots have been used to test the CCF and supporting teaching materials in different contexts and provide feedback for further improvement, communication and sustainability reasons.
These pilots represent a key leverage for future deployment and exploitation and provide practical awareness and guidance on how to use, implement and extend/enhance the CCF and other OI-Net outcomes in the future.
The outcomes of the Pilots have been shared within the full OI-Net network and were used:
- to validate the European CCF on OI,
- to collect the feedback on the content and teacher skills required for delivering open innovation teaching,
- to support the transferability and appropriation process of the CCF
