Time: 13-18 on Thursday 25 September
Venue: Deutsche Telekom facilities at Winterfeldtstrasse 21, Berlin, Germany
The workshop is organised by the EIT ICT Labs' activities SmartCollaborationSpaces: Bringing Presence and Collaborative Space to the Next Level and the Innovation Radar.
The event is mostly meant for partners involved in Smart Spaces Action Line, but there are a few seats left for others.
Society is in an accelerated process of change and transformation: smart design components, interconnectivity, responsive and open-ended design systems, and intelligent buildings meet the challenges of user-oriented customisation and new ICT-driven manufacturing processes.
- How is this technology shaping human behaviour?
- What intelligence will the citizens of Europe contribute to its smart spaces?
In light of the above we want to explore the greatest business opportunities ahead.
- Can radical market transitions be foreseen?
- What risks will the new technologies bring to society?
Goal and Methodology
The workshop will produce tentative scripts or drafts for 1-2 minute films/animations relating to the above themes. The workshop output will be presented and improved upon at a follow-up workshop, as part of the Smart Spaces event "Results Day" in Espoo, Finland on 3-4 December.
The methodology employed is networked foresight. In order to achieve the workshop goal, speedwriting will be used to generate the short film-scripts, as well as other texts towards completion of the business plan deliverables.
