CODIS project workshop summary
The CODIS project pilot-setup workshop took place at KEPA’s premises in Thessaloniki, on November 12th - 16th, 2018
This 5-days “Design Sprint” session focused on designing and developing a new
programme. This week’s work was based on the outcomes of the prior
peer-learning workshop in Tallinn and suggested methodology & guidelines
developed on how to set up a new programme/service, as described in the draft
Design Options Paper (DOP).
During this one week, the three project partners designed the pilot programme “Re:Connect”. Having in mind the local ecosystem, the SME level of maturity / integration regarding Design Thinking, together with the lack of designers (in its methodological – process-oriented meaning), the programme aims to bring these two different target groups together. Enhancing SMEs’ design integration and user-orientation of their products, services and/or processes on the one side, and “re-educating” designers (web / graphic designers / consultants / marketeers / architects / etc.) into the process of Design Thinking on the other hand.
The pilot programme, valued of 1260€ per participant, will be offered for free to -up-to- 5 SMEs and 10 designers, and it will last for 2 months. The programme includes 2 B2B meetings with each working team, 2 hands-on workshops and a final event, during which the results of the programme and participants’ experience will be shared.
