The way we work is rapidly changing. Social and technological drivers transform how we interact. What are potential scenarios of working, co-creating and innovating together beyond the spaces we know today? How will we work in the future and how will we need to adapt our physical workspaces to incorporate the digital? What can the disciplines of architecture, management and information technology contribute together in this challenge? 

Discuss these questions with professional facilitation of our experts to solve one of the most relevant topics across industries. Get inspired by new research insights and hands-on expertise looking at workspaces from a people-, technology- and building-driven perspective. Create a compelling workspace experience for the future.

We are looking for applications from Master Students in

  • Architecture
  • Industrial Design
  • Management
  • Informatics
  • Engineering

Apply for the Design Thinking Lab ‘Workspaces for DigitalYOU’ at until October 31, 2018 by submitting a short motivation letter, a short CV + average grade and a project portfolio.

The workshop is part of the 3-year Erasmus+ Strategic Partnership “Strengthening Architecture and the Built Environment Research” (SABRE), conducted by five leading European universities in architecture and the built environment (BauHow5) and co-funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union.
