Abstract [en]

At universities students and supervisors strive for interesting and meaningful research problems to study in thesis projects. For students, finding a good topic for their thesis work is a lonely and tiresome process. A meaningful topic motivate supervisors to closely monitor and support students. The industry, state and the civil society where the interesting research problems exist on the other hand struggle to find appropriate expertise to solve their practical problems. Although connecting right stakeholders together fulfil the requirement of all the counterparts, such a collaboration is not as simple as it sounds. As Hansson et.al (Hansson, et al., 2014) acknowledges, current efforts of connecting both the entities are mostly ad hoc and driven by private and personal networks. Many initiatives such as, Kista science city project (Kista Sceince City, 2017), Urban ICT arena (Urban ICT Arena, 2017), Samverkancheck (Collaboration) project at Stockholm University (Stockholm University, 2017) and many small scale collaboration initiatives of Ericsson and IBM with Swedish Universities can be named as few successful attempts. Silicon Valley in United States is another popular example for similar collaboration. With the use of information systems to manage and support activities, research collaborations are empowered by platforms that search and connect people for research and development purposes. Idea bank is a popular initiative for fulfilling this requirement. However, idea bank initiatives have limitations of connecting interested people to experts from a wider society. But there is a huge demand especially from developing regions, for new ideas which can be used as thesis works in higher education. A large number of students in these countries still struggle to find interesting and meaningful ideas to work with in their thesis work, while the society, state and industry are compelled for expensive problem solving approaches. Therefore a generic and globally reachable approach is required to fill in this gap of connecting required expertise with the needs. The Global idea bank approach is motivated by the exact requirement. The primary aim of this approach is to connect different counterparts in solving problems of general and practical interest. Thereby following objectives are set. 1. Developing an entry point for big and small ideas to be investigated by universities, 2. Creating supportive processes to facilitate communication among the stakeholders 3. Developing functions to create, select, sort, improve, refine, and filter ideas 4. Developing a gateway to connect the ideas to thesis support systems (eg. SciPro (Hansson & Moberg, 2011)) at universities 5. Facilitate the process with relevant information and -online templates for reporting and finance management
