-
Hauptschule
Breakout
english language

Supported by Brainds
How can we deal with our ever more complex world in the best possible way? How can technological and social innovation become more target-oriented, placing it at the service of people? Design Thinking is based on “human centred, solution based thinking”, applying the creative and collaborative methods employed in design to find new solutions for the issues of our times. In this breakout session, we will not only provide you with an insight into the ways and contents of design thinking, but invite you to take an active part in a design thinking process.
