Project Title: DT.UNI.-Design Thinking Approach for an Interdisciplinary University
The main aim of the project is development of innovation in higher education institutions.
The overall objective of the project is to enhance the level of interdisciplinary at higher education institutions by using a bottom-up approach, i.e. supporting students, researchers, academics and management staff in developing their ability to think divergently, creatively, designery (according to design thinking approach). The project will enable students to adopt a „designerly” way of thinking and facilitate their shift from passive knowledge consumers to active producers of knowledge. The challenge is to accelerate and widen the exchange of skills and opinions of social science and humanities and creative people in general.
