Part of the Arts&Innovation Discourses series
Join us for a discussion into how design can be used to align and coordinate different stakeholders including academia, industry and government institutions.
In the current networked economies, innovative ideas, competences and resources are sometimes distributed in different geographic, social and cultural contexts or possessed by diverse people and organisations. Entrepreneurs bring together these ideas, competences and resources forging connections, which can create economic, societal and environmental value and introduce innovative ways of achieving goals.
Luca Simeone – Visiting Researcher in design management and interaction design of the Innovation Insights Hub – will explore how design can ignite, foster and fuel entrepreneurship. Referring to design and social processes of innovation he will discuss: participatory design, co-design, iterative design, user research and testing, hackathons, design jams and living labs. All these processes can be instrumental to support entrepreneurship precisely because they connect and align stakeholders, ideas and resources.
The Community of Practice scheme
The Innovation Insights Hub was specifically founded by UAL to research the contribution of the arts to business. We are committed to developing models and tools to support arts driven innovations. In this context attention is paid to the development of evaluation methodologies for social innovation as well as to the definition of policy guidelines to facilitate collaboration between arts and business, promoting an interdisciplinary culture combining creative and strategic thinking.
This event is held as part of UAL’s Community of Practice scheme, for which the Hub has committed to focus its discourse on evaluation methodologies. Within the discussion, this event provides an opportunity for academics, students, university management staff and invited industry guests to share experiences of evaluation methodologies used in collaborative projects.
