By conducting group field work in a number of concrete cases, CFIA's student teams within the FI4SGD minor, reproduce and interpret knowledge about frugal innovation from a technological, entrepreneurial and developmental perspective.
The teams apply these perspectives critically to a selection of action learning cases in collaboration with CFIA's partners & organisations in the Netherlands and/or from different parts of the world.
Due to the covid-19 pandemic, the teams have conducted their field work this year remotely. From November 2020 until January 2021 the teams collected data in order to analyse and interpret the potential of frugality/frugal innovation. Read more about the objectives and experiences of the teams in the below project pages. All the project information has been collected and written by the students with the coordination of Student Ambassadors Vivian, Lisa, Marielle and Raphael.
