The course is given at a distance with lectures online and contains three compulsory meetings at Jönköping University, if possible. The course runs over 13 weeks at quarter speed with course meetings 1-2 days about once a month. We mainly target professional participants and concrete industry-related issues are given priority. The idea is that all participants, in parallel with the course, should be able to apply the theoretical content directly in their own professional practice.

Via the course's learning platform, you get access to web lectures and discussion forums and with e-meetings we can communicate remotely and discuss the challenges we work with in the course. About once a month we meet in Jönköping, which provides the opportunity for practical exercises and networking with colleagues and researchers / teachers with cutting-edge expertise in the field.

The education is free of charge and is financed and developed within the project PREMIUM, which is a project funded by the Knowledge Foundation.
