Neurodesign Lecture – Physiological Perspectives on Engineering Design, Creativity, Collaboration and Innovation (WT 2019/20)

Dr. Julia von Thienen

This lecture series is a unique teaching event. Internationally recognized experts on topics such as the neuroscience of creativity, design, collaboration and innovation – as well as creative engineers in the realm of neuroscience – visit the HPI to grant insights into their works and projects. Together we discuss relevant findings, methods and work objectives for creative engineers and design thinkers.

This is the festive kick-off event for neurodesign education at the HPI. In this emerging research field, with a curriculum that evolves in close collaboration of multiple institutes including the universities of Stanford and Potsdam, we explore topic areas that are pertinent and exciting at the intersection of (i) neuroscience, (ii) engineering and (iii) design thinking - creativity - collaboration - innovation.
