Together with Eindhoven's educational institutions
How could students from different educational institutions collaborate on issues for the city of Eindhoven? We find the answer to this question together with, you guessed it, Eindhoven's educational institutions. In 2022, we mapped needs, opportunities, and challenges around this topic at TU/e Innovationspace, Design Academy Eindhoven, Fontys Pulsed, Fontys ICT InnovationLab, Start-Up School (powered by Summa College), and SintLucas. We also spoke to partners in the city engaged in projects at the intersection of design and technology. The conclusion? Above all, we have to start doing things!
So with these educational institutions, we set to work. Through two co-creation sessions, we laid the foundation for the collaboration of students from different educational institutions to work together on Eindhoven's challenges. Service design agency Zeewaardig supported us in the development of activating work forms and the supervision of the co-creation sessions. Eindhoven365 has a facilitating role within this project. As a connector, we drive the cooperation between the educational institutions, collect challenges from partners in the city, and lay the strategic foundation for the future.
