Co-creative pop-up laboratory

Collaboration with patients and other stakeholders allows for joint creation of solutions that fit real needs. By uniting healthcare innovators with stakeholders, Co-up Lab facilitates co-creation.


Co-up Lab is a semester-long incubation process. Students develop ideas in co-creation with stakeholders, including patients, healthcare professionals, citizens, researchers, policy makers and others. The class will “pop-up” at designated public locations, with a mobile creative space where all stakeholders can work together.

Along with co-creation, students will learn other skills for innovation, such as design thinking, through hands-on training. The course is intended to prepare future “change agents” to take entrepreneurial action that addresses key priorities within healthcare through innovation.

The course will will take place in Stockholm, Sweden, and will run from 14 September-14 December 2020.
