How does innovation and design in European engineering education evolve?
We are currently in a period of intensive innovation characterized by an acceleration of the renewal of products and services. On the other hand, the current transitions ahead of us (energetic, demographic, numeric…), call for the implementation of new design practices shared by engineers, scientists, and managers. Historically, unprecedented needs for new design activities led to a renewal of both design theories and engineering corpus.
This first online conference, organized by the EELISA Community “Innovation and Design in European Engineering Education (IDEEE)”, proposes a reflection on the current evolutions of innovation and design in European engineering education. It also tackles questions from an industrial point of view while focusing on identifying the new design needs of industrial companies and the future those needs entail.
To do so, the event counts on two industrial observers of the current transformations: Natascha Eckert, Head of Siemens Research and Innovation Ecosystem and Sébastien Massard, Chief Corporate Strategist at Dassault Systèmes.
Natascha Eckert will deliver a presentation entitled “Why and how do companies contribute to the renewal of Design-Based education? Lessons learned from Siemens and its Research and Innovation Ecosystem program”. Sébastien Massart will deliver a presentation entitled “Who will engineer the Industry Renaissance?” Both presentations will be discussed and will to an open debate within the audience.
On April 12th, 2022 from 4 pm to 6 pm (CEST).
Online, via the zoom link that will be provided upon registration
It is open to everyone interested in the future of European engineering education.
