Design-driven innovation is a people-oriented way of working with innovation, helping you solve problems and create new solutions based on real user needs. Interdisciplinary collaboration and co-creation throughout the innovation process can contribute to more accurate and holistic solutions.
In the Gnist-programme, DOGA and Nordic Edge are helping municipalities turning their societal challenges into new ideas and opportunities for sustainable local development, by using design-driven innovation as a method.
The response among both municipalities and companies so far have been overwhelming. In this workshop we will share knowledge and learnings that are useful both for public and private actors. Among other things, we will show:
- How to define an innovation-friendly challenge?
- How can user focus and co-creation lead to new ideas and opportunities for sustainable local and business development?
- What does a design-driven innovation process look like in practice?
Designers from Webstep and Gnizt will share experience and findings from innovative design processes in the municipalities of Lund and Flekkefjord.
The workshop is in Norwegian, and will be facilitated by DOGA, Webstep and Gnizt.
