Science2Society-project meeting in Karlsruhe - ProVIL workshop

October, 2018

On the 26th of September 2018 an interactive workshop was held by Benjamin Walter at the Institute of Technology and Product Engineering (KIT-IPEK) in Karlsruhe, during the last day of the Science2Society-project meeting. The focus of this workshop was ProVIL (Product development with future users in a Virtual Idea-Laboratory), a Live-Lab to research processes, methods and tools of distributed product generation engineering. About 16 participants from S2S consortium and KIT-IPEK students were invited to discuss questions like: How does ProVIL enable scientists to improve suitability and maturity of the design support which they create? How could Live-Lab be improved to enhance its capability? More specifically, the workshop gave the opportunity to reflect which are the barriers and the potential obstacles to successfully transfer a co-creation methodology from university to industry.
