Net http://coolhuntingbarcelona.wordpress.com/ http://www.facebook.com/groups/MIDIELISAVA/ http://www.linkedin.comgroups?about=&gid=3848179 Presentation This master’s degree combines two disciplines that are very powerful in the pre-design process: trends research and co- creation techniques. It is focused on providing the current tools related to qualitative and ethnographic research, interdiscplinarity, and design thinking. These tools are addressed to innovation processes that are applicable to industry and society. We understand innovation as a way of approaching the meeting of the user real and changeable necessities, with the purpose of improving the quality of life through products, services, experiences, and new tools. Classic preconceptions are rethought, banking on the creation and prototyping based on exhaustive research. Throughout the course, we will develop research projects in association with several firms and the government, such as Artemide, Lekue, Telefónica, Cirque du Soleil, or Barcelona Town Council, among others. We collaborate with numerous collectives, groups, institutions, and universities involved in the subject of innovation in Europe and Latin America, in order to strengthen networks and facilitate partnerships. Every edition gives the students the opportunity to carry out two field trips to European cities in order to explore trends, working patterns, and users’ opinions, coming back with a wide range of innovation-related options. We organise workshops and events that allow increasing the participation revolving issues such as design, trends, innovation, and design thinking. Objectives • Train researchers capable of creating and being involved in innovation and development processes. • Offer professionals not linked to design the tools to supplement their education in scientific, technical and humanistic fields in order to enhance their professional profile and increase their opportunities. • Offer design practitioners a space for interacting with other agents involved in innovation processes with the aim of working in multidisciplinary teams. • Address innovation in the broadest sense, including its technological, social, creative, productive and business scheme ramifications. • Foster the creation of spaces and events for exchange and collaboration between all agents involved in innovation processes. • Allow organisations, companies and governments to explore new systems, products, services and experiences via innovation- related academic projects.
