Chapter 27: Fostering a culture of radical technological innovation within the boundaries of the educational system in higher education
Restricted access

For decades, emerging technologies and digitization have been identified as the great disruptors of higher education. In 2020, it is safe to say that its effect is not as nearly disruptive as once thought. To change the educational system and enter a new paradigm, a different, maybe more radical, approach is needed. As part of the Erasmus University Rotterdam (The Netherlands), ErasmusX's mission is to challenge the current educational status quo. ErasmusX aims to offer students an alternative educational experience in a rich and contextualized real-life setting. We discuss two cases of ErasmusX, an accelerator at Erasmus University Rotterdam, to show the importance of radical innovations, how universities can benefit from the high-risk projects conducted by an innovative unit, and what the added value is for students, teachers and staff.
