During an extended weekend we will integrate the knowledge and experience of professionals (scientists, businessmen, civil servants) with the energy, creativity and drive of young talent and entrepreneurs. We will combine a Creathon for students and young entrepreneurs, with a workshop based on Science2Design4Society (S2D4S) methodology for professionals. The two programs will run in parallel and will be connected via speed dates in which the Creathon teams can tap into the knowledge of the professionals.
The challenges for the Creathon will focus on your regional implications of Digitalisation, Urbanisation and Climate Change & Sustainability. The target of the S2D4S workshop for professionals will be to develop a practical framework for ELS (Ethical, Legal and Societal) readiness levels , including metrics and indicators, to better judge the impact of smart developments.
The weekend is organised by Novel-T and DesignLab University of Twente for ECIU(European Consortium of Innovative Universities) members and their triple-helix partners, along with Enschede smart city alliances.
