Take the opportunity to increase your capacity to solve complex problems in innovative ways. No matter your profession, Design Thinking will affect how you address your daily work. It is a toolkit of exercises as much as a mind-set that makes you reframe your challenges and create understanding for your target groups.

Master’s Course Project Reports

Another term of Openlab's master's course has come to an end, and the students from our four partner universities, KTH, SU, SH and KI, have completed their projects.

The challenges the interdisciplinary student teams of autumn 2017 has worked on are about Children's Right To Culture (a challenge from the Culture Administration, City of Stockholm), more flexible solutions for transports for people in Stockholm (from the County Council) and measures for better water quality in Stockholm (from the Environmental administration, city of Stockholm & Eriksson, within the collaboration Digital Demo Stockholm).

Their insight and solutions are presented at the project delivery event at Openlab on January 11, 9.00-12.00 and in their project reports.
