In cooperation with the Start-up Centre of the University of Konstanz (Kilometer1) and Young Entrepreneus in Science.
Design thinking is a systematic approach to solving complex problems from all areas of life. In contrast to many other approaches in science and practice, which approach a task focusing on technical feasibility, design thinking puts user wishes and needs as well as user-oriented invention at the center of the process.
Design thinkers look at a problem through the user’s eyes and thus put themselves in the role of the user.
This workshop offers a hands-on introduction to user-centered methods of idea development and idea implementation.
