Design Thinking Boot Camp

Design Thinking Boot Camp
09. & 10. Juli 2019 von 09.30 bis 17.00 Uhr
Building K, Room 019, Hochschule Mannheim

inno.space and M²Aind have the pleasure of inviting you for a Design Thinking Bootcamp, on the 9th and 10th of July. This event is dedicated to small and medium companies, giving priority to partners involved in the M²Aind network while also accepting organisations working in the Medical Engineering field.

This bootcamp has the goal of providing a glimpse of what Design Thinking can be and how you can apply this method in other areas of your professional life as well as inside your organisation.

With the increasing technical possibilities and the growing competition of globally operating companies, the importance of innovation also grows in order to stay in the game. And a valuable tool proven to be crucial to stay in the front line of innovation is the Design Thinking Mindset.

Design Thinking is a hands-on approach used to tackle wicked real world problems. This method can be applied to design products, services and processes. It is based on collaborative creativity in multidisciplinary teams and has its core in the user and continuous iteration. This means that the process is driven by people - real humans with pains and needs. By building and learning from people's needs as well as testing with real users, the concepts represent a holistic integration of the three main pillars for sustainable innovation: desirability, viability and feasibility.

During this two-day bootcamp conducted in English, we will go through a full cycle of the Design Thinking method, which includes the following stages: user and market research, ideation, prototyping and testing.
You will get to work on a broad challenge related to healthcare and the medical field.

On both days the activities will be held at inno.space (Paul-Wittsack Straße, 4 Building K, Room 019) from 9:30 until 17:00.

The bootcamp is free of charge for M²Aind partners and has the cost of 200€ per person for external companies.
Registrations are limited to 2 people per organisation and to 20 participants in total.

Please let us know what company you are representing when registering and how many people will join.
Register now by sending an email to: inno.space@hs-mannheim.de.
