In the current European context, and in the Spanish in particular, with the entire system in global crisis, where everything moves fast and few things remain unaltered, the university has the challenge of training people to be prepared to deal with the changing environment, who must be prepared, at any given time, to compete to get or keep a job, to reinvent themselves at work, to be able to make the leap to other countries or to create their own job or company. Society needs creative and competitive enterprises that offer new products and services, with managers and workers trained for these tasks. In the educational context, the accumulation of knowledge content is losing meaning and the acquisition of procedures and attitudes is gaining presence. Therefore, the generic skills are becoming relevant in the whole educational process, and more specifically innovation competence. In this paper we investigate the components of innovation competence with the objective of introducing it into the curriculum and examine learning and assessment methodologies that will promote it to make our graduates better prepared for the work place.
