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
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 Sustainable Development Goals. We will also train organisations and professionals to adopt a different mindset and be able to stimulate a sharing culture within their work environment or community.
