6 SKILLS AND EDUCATION FOR INNOVATION

7 Skills/qualifications for Innovation Do skills matter for innovation? –Yes, the lack of qualified personnel within the business and the sector is quoted as one of the top impediments to innovation by innovative businesses What skills/qualifications foster innovation in the economy? –A broad mix of skills: scientific and non-scientific; general and vocational Has recent innovation led to a change in the level and type of education demanded? –Evidence of hollowing out of wage distribution in the US, Canada, EU-15 (skill biased technical change + something else) Are certain uses of workforce skills associated with more innovation? –Yes, learning organisations where employees learn, are trained and have discretion are also associated with more lead innovation –There are different national « cultures » about that

8 Individual Skills for Innovation Literacy and numeracy: « foundation » skills are key to access lifelong learning (upper secondary education?) What individual competences for innovation (« 21st Century skills ») should people acquire to contribute to innovation as producers and users? –Subject-based skills (know-what and know-how) –Skills in thinking and creativity (critical thinking, imagination, curiosity) –Behavioural and social skills (self-confidence, energy, passion, leadership, collaboration, communication) Departing from classification between « cognitive »/ « non- cognitive » skills or « hard »/« soft » skills

9 Competences to be stimulated: –Creativity –Entrepreneurship –Interest in learning Educational policy questions: –How broad/narrow should be the curriculum? –How to develop all categories of skills simultaneously? –What change in teaching and assessment practices? Limited current evidence: –Importance of traditional academic competences –Importance of specialisation Education for innovation

10 How to foster these skills? What do we know about the impact of some curricula and pedagogies on specific skills belonging to these broad categories at different educational levels: –Arts education –STEM education –Entrepreneurship education What are the promising ideas and practices in this area? What policy measures could we propose to policy makers and practitioners?
