Design Sciences Hub

"When the metropolis is an enormous petri dish, a bold live experiment then the Design Sciences Hub is a research, design, and innovation hub on a mission to provide answers towards the most challenging and wicked urban problems of our time." Alexander D'Hooghe

Blue Sky Studio

"Continuing to do what we are currently doing but doing it harder or smarter is not likely to produce very different outcomes. Real change starts with recognizing that we are part of the systems we seek to change" Peter Senge

FUTURE URBAN HEALTH CARE
FUTURE URBAN HEALTH CARE

Wat als de stad ons gezonder kan maken? Wat als het ziekenhuis wordt opgedeeld in voor iedereen bereikbare en superefficiënte gezondheidshubs? En welke rol speelt technologie in gezondheidszorg van de toekomst? Kortom: Hoe kan innovatie de stad waarin we leven beter maken?

Het afgelopen jaar bogen wetenschappers uit de Design Sciences Hub zich vanuit hun Blue Sky Studio over al die vragen. Dit denkwerk resulteerde in een multidisciplinaire én academische benadering die op een aantrekkelijke manier wordt vormgegeven in de gloednieuwe, virtuele expo ‘Future Urban Health’.

The key is not to demand that things remain the same. At no time in history have we needed system changes more. In our Blue Sky Studio we want to tackle wicked problems by design. By seeing the larger system, fostering reflection and shifting the focus from reactive problem solving to cocreating the future. We envision scenario’s using the PSS-toolkit and try to understand what can be the impact of change. To find out more get in contact!
