A YEAR ON FROM UOC&PLUGGED

A year ago, Sant Jordi (St George’s day, 23 April) was the starting point for UOC&PLUGGED, a competition that was made possible thanks to the ideas and effort of more than 700 participants. During this time, we've been able to follow the evolution and successes of some of the ideas thanks to the updates we’ve received on their progress.

To celebrate this first year, we'd like to offer a compilation of all these initiatives so that you can all see the transformation they've undergone in 365 days.

PHILIPPE DELESPESSE: “CREATIVITY COMES FROM ASKING NEW QUESTIONS”

“Many people think that creativity comes from the generation of ideas, but in reality it starts much earlier, by asking new questions, because if you ask a different question, you’re going to get a different answer.”

This is the thought that Philippe Delespesse presented at a workshop on creative thinking for people taking part in the UOC&PLUGGED competition a few months ago.

THE PROJECT: SYSTEMIC INNOVATION

Innovation now has little to do with the inflexible structures where most productive activity took shape in the past. Today, medium-sized and large companies can (and must!) take a look around outside their organization and see what is happening in networks, in garages, in business incubators, in co-working centres and meeting places, and within informal associations; and find out what new creators of services and products are getting up to, people for whom innovation is the norm, part of the amniotic fluid in which they naturally, passionately and exactingly go about their everyday work.

María Jesús Salido published this article on The Project on 25 January 2013.

DOLORS REIG: "WE ARE RELEARNING TO PARTICIPATE"

As an expert in social psychology, Dolors Reig explains to us the meaning of this concept: "Social psychology is change in society brought about by how an individual changes. Before large structures are modified, what changes first are people (their thoughts, feelings and behavior)".

OPEN APP OF THE WEEK: UOC MAPS

 The UOC, as a networked and net-based university, doesn’t let any chance to foster a spirit of community and belonging among its students, faculty, collaborators and alumni go by.

With this in mind, they have now created an application called UOC Maps to aid communication between the members of the university community and to help them make contact, whether for professional or personal reasons.
