After Athens, Bamburg and Alicante, DAIAD’s OpenWaterDay is coming to London in February 2017!
What exactly is an OpenWaterDay? Check this video from OWDAlicante!
OWDLondon is aimed at students, professionals and inquiring minds. We shall have the opportunity to learn the innovation methodologies of Design Thinking (Creative Problem Solving / Service & Business Design), hand in hand with specialists in these techniques. We shall apply them in practice to develop creative solutions to water and technology challenges, in the context of the DAIAD project and pressures on water resources in the UK.
The event will begin with presentations on water issues to frame the problem followed by presentations and exercises on innovation. The afternoon workshop group sessions will shape approaches, undertake rapid idea prototyping, and lead to “elevator pitches” on proposals. All the participants will receive a certificate of attendance, and the best proposal, chosen by an expert jury, will receive an award in recognition of their work.
We will add more information on the final venue, date and registration soon!
