Creativity and Innovation. An interdisciplinary pilot project

Project Description

As a part of the ambition to stimulate interdisciplinary research including academics from different faculties, a development project was initiated focusing on creative and innovative processes.

The intention was to bring together researchers from different faculties studying creative and innovative processes and based on a case study test whether they could develop a joint research approach. In May 2016 Urban Goods facilitated a workshop focusing on Design to improve life in which the participants formulated research interest, methodic approach etc.

As a way of establishing an interdisciplinary dialogue about a common research interest, the process functioned well and several of the participants continued collaborating on publications after the pilot project.
