InnoChain Colloquium: Prototypes


The InnoChain Second Year Colloquium, which will take place between the 12th and the 14th of February 2018, is an evaluation event in which all Early Stage Researcher (ESRs) present their research development.

The InnoChain ITN Network is a shared research training environment examining how advances in digital design tools challenge building culture enabling sustainable, informed and materially smart design solutions. The network aims to train a new generation of interdisciplinary researchers, through the development of 15 PhDs, with a strong industry focus that can effect real changes in the way we think, design and build our physical environment.

The Second Year Colloquium invites therefore all beneficiaries and industry partners to discuss the research development of the ESR projects in plenum. This includes review and evaluation of industrial collaboration and secondment programme including the secondment periods.

Keynote speakers will give lectures to support the further research development and invited scientists will carry out evaluation of level of work and progress within the network. In addition, meetings of the Industry Partner Board takes place on the second day, while meetings of the Steering Committee and ESRs’ will take place on the third day of the Colloquium.

The Colloquium is organised around three sessions presenting the three Work Packages:

WP3 Communicating Design, Chair Jan Knippers, ITKE
WP4 Simulating for Design, Chair Ulrika Knagenhielm-Karlsson, KTH
WP5 Materialising Design, Chair Bob Sheil, BSA

Visiting Scientists: Mark Burry and Jane Burry (Swinburne University); Christoph Gengnagel (Berlin University of the Arts).
PROTOTYPES – Research Exhibition

The Second InnoChain Exhibition “Prototypes” focuses on the role of the industry collaboration as a driving force for the development of the InnoChain project. For this ESRs are asked to showcase their industry collaborations, which they have been working on through their secondments over the recent past.

The ESRs will use videos to show how their industry partner collaboration is going; a dialogue on what is the interest for both sides to accelerate the research being developed. This video content will be illustrated with a series of prototypes of the latest work being developed by the ESRs.
