STUDENTS OF THE MASTER IN DESIGN MANAGEMENT ARE WORKING WITH CERN TO INNOVATE IN MEETING SOCIAL NEEDS
Students of the Master in Design Management have been chosen to take part in an international project involving collaboration with CERN (European Organization for Nuclear Research). CERN is a world leader in the field of particle physics. The project involves seeking new solutions for Mankind’s future and aims to narrow the gap between science and society by fostering an experimental training programme on innovation for students throughout the world.
After a weekend of learning with scientists at CERN’s facilities in Geneva, the students aim to create products and services for solving the problems facing society.
The students face four pressing challenges, namely: (1) cutting down the world’s food waste; (2) inventing a variable system that allows the handicapped to enhance their natural mobility; (3) designing a system that gives information on the impact of inter-personal interaction; (4) creating a personalized service providing welfare and security by using a combination of data on the setting and on human behavior.
