Our place in the world
La Innovation Kitchen (LIK) is an experiential learning space where anyone can develop their innovation power and change-making skills through Project-Based-Learning and Learning-by-Doing Methods.
LIK helps grow both technical and soft skills that support the formation of a critical, creative, and proactive mindset oriented to complex problem-solving.
LIK's programs and activities involve real-life challenges that motivate participants and challenge sponsors to find practical solutions. We also provide a set of resources and mentors, that guide and support participants to develop unique solutions.
LIK has a deeply humanistic approach and a social, entrepreneurial, and professional concern for the future, in order to find new and better ways to participate in society, do business, create and run organizations and impact the natural and economic environment that surrounds us.
LIK is the evolution of traditional university or college learning program schemes, combined with a living lab and community-based action for a more agile, practical, and hands-on approach to creativity. All our efforts are applied to social and organizational problem-solving.

"La Innovation Kitchen is a welcoming & multi-functional space. I was able to be a part of various different activities that took place there, from co-facilitating a large group of students to formal client meetings, simple informal tutorships with my Professors or having a quiet space to work with my team! The abstract nature of innovation is reflected on the space in its most tangible form".
