Summer & Winter School

We offer lectures, seminars, and workshops. Innovative training formats foster exchange and integration of results, approaches, and experiences among universities, industry, government, and civil society—and our prototeams' reflexive practice.

Design for sustainable socio-economic models

Our fourth winter school offers advanced training modules that revise and extend data-driven notions of optimisation and efficiency and promote the idea of multi-sided value with triple bottom line (social, economic, environmental). The modules will provide participatory methods to support the use of designed artefacts for data-driven value capture and co-creation at appropriate points in a value constellation.
