A snapshot from the Campus of Aveiro University

Jean-BernardBerke, Derya and Javier was attending to “Models of Creative Design” For Innovation in Science and Technology at Aveiro, Portugal.

“Models of Creative Design” 2010 is the second of two summer schools proposed as part of the DESIRE: “Creative Design for Innovation in Science and Technology,” Programme of Marie Curie Initial Training Network. DESIRE aims to establish an interdisciplinary network of researchers investigating creative design in various applied domains, including interaction design, industrial design, and arts design. It was promoted by seven partners: Copenhagen Business School, Eindhoven University of Technology, Lancaster University (coordinator), The Portuguese Catholic University, University of Aveiro, University of Milan and Philips Research.

Guest Speakers were John Gero and Nigel Cross

The 2010 summer school was built on grounding creativity theory, analysis and modelling creative processes in design and innovation. Industrial, artistic, and collaborative design is explored from the perspective of the user, the cognitive scientist, the software engineer, and the interaction scholars as well as the designer. Several aspects of creative design, such as: design cognition models; design processing; computer supported collaborative design, creative digital interaction and qualitative analysis; is examined.
