During the past decade, design has been recognised as a powerful innovation driver and has proven to be useful when approaching complex societal challenges. This Forum for Social Innovation panel brought together researchers with extensive experience in participatory design and social innovation to discuss how design labs can contribute to societal development.
People from all sectors were invited to two sessions that addressed the notion of design labs and how they potentially could contribute to societal development. During the first session, the discussion was on a general level that. In the afternoon it was slightly more academic but everyone was still welcome to join.
