How can you leverage your scientific skills to have an impact on people's lives?
MARS42 is a Innovation School designed to help you succeed in today's landscape.
Methodology: Simulation based training
Simulation based training has multiple advantages, because it is interactive and takes place in real environment.
Participants can make mistakes and easily evaluate the consequence of them. Crisis management can be simulated and observed in different circumstances, in order to let people to be prepared when those events happen in the real life.
Compared to other methodologies, the SBT:
1. Has better results in case of complex and applied skills;
2. Has a higher return (more learning in less time);
3. Allows to simplify the reality in order to make it manageable since the beginning.
Work on a real project, in team
Each lecture is followed by a practical session where participants have the opportunity to immediately apply what they have learned on a real project, working in team of 4-5 people.
The business idea to work on will be defined on the first day of MARS42, choosing among the ones proposed by the participants and the companies involved as Partners.
All the proposed business ideas are real case histories of scientific projects.
