What is Design Thinking Explorations?

Design Thinking Explorations are short courses, workshops and seminars hosted or facilitated by the Cyprus Interaction Lab of the Cyprus University of Technology involving a deep immersion into Design Thinking principles and methods. Not only we explore wicked challenges and provide co-creation solutions but link these to our wide academic global network.
Customised workshops for organisations and companies to learn a wide array of Design Thinking tools and methods and how to deploy them.
Tailor-made workshops ranging from 1 to 5 days to explore your challenge and develop responses involving you in the process.
Public engagement presentations and lectures from our experts to your audience. Insights, tips and tricks on Design Thinking for innovation.
Design Thinking Explorations follows a Living Lab philosophy, involving users in the innovation process through design thinking activities. The user perspective is a fundamental aspect in Design Thinking Explorations. Various methods must be used to support the views of the users, arising from the need to support innovation over disciplinary boundaries. Similarly to Living Labs, Design Thinking Explorations involves user-centred, open-innovation, and co-creation of innovations in real-world contexts. It can be considered an authentic approach to research and innovation processes focusing on the end-users.

"We learned how to carry out research, ideate, test with users, evaluate and analyse the results, improve the idea, go back to the users, improve the idea again... This trip in design thinking taught us a lot but what will stay with me the most is that in order to realize an idea all these stages are necessary if we want our end product to meet the real needs of the users."
