Manifesto

to create an inclusive digital society

we build and foster a diverse community of learners

with a human-centered design approach

and the openness to share our knowledge with the world

Tracks to
follow

Our projects are clustered in intensive, trend related programmes called Tracks. Each Track sees multidisciplinary teams of designers, developers and researchers working on challenges that meet the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

Digital to Physical

How does the blend of the digital and physical worlds change our society? In this track we explore topics such as physical representation of data, sense of presence and smart objects.

Data Driven Transformation

How can we ensure we marshal data in such a way as to benefit society? We explore the possibilities, considering subjects such as the energy transition, health and experience.

Systems for Sharing

In this track we will work on technical, digital and social systems. We create proof of concepts, prototypes and do applied research to support ’systems for sharing’ in the light of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. We will also train organizations and professionals to adopt a different mindset and be able to stimulate a sharing culture within their work environment or community.

Institutional partners

Our partners understand that positive impact on society goes hand in hand with value creation for their own organisation. They are ready for digital, integral solutions for ‘people, planet and profit’, in line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Sure, they might not know how to get there yet, but that is exactly what we’ll work on together.
