"Danish User-centered Innovation Lab (DUCI lab) is a collaboration between faculty at Copenhagen Business School, Aarhus School of Business and Massachusetts Institute of Technology, based at Copenhagen Business School.
DUCI lab is a unique effort to understand the issues involved in user innovation processes, with particular emphasis on managing user driven innovation. The project takes advantage of CBS location in Denmark. Denmark has been at the forefront in creating policies that favor user driven innovation. CBS’s location at the heart of one of the world's most vibrant user driven regions provides valuable information for scholars, managers and policy makers.
The DUCI lab team consists of a number of academics, six major Danish companies and representatives from Danish Government. The efforts of the DUCI team focuses on the identification of best practice user innovation inside leading edge companies and on how such practices can be diffused broadly for the benefit of start-ups, SME’s and other types of organizations."
