Descripción

The master’s degree combines two powerful disciplines in the pre-design process: trend research and co-creation techniques.It is focused on providing current tools related to qualitative and ethnographic research, interdisciplinarity and design thinking geared toward innovation processes applicable to society and industry.

We see innovation as a process of continually addressing users’ real and changing needs in order to improve quality of life through products, services, experiences and new tools. Old patterns are re-examined and re-evaluated and prototypes are being boldly designed based exclusively on thorough research.

During the course, we carry out research projects in the private and public sectors, such as at Artemide, Lékué, Telefónica, Cirque du Soleil or the City of Barcelona among others. We collaborate with multiple entities, groups, institutions and universities involved with innovation in Europe and Latin America, to strengthen networks and facilitate partnerships.

Students in each course go on two field trips to European cities to explore trends, working patterns and user opinions. They come back with a wide range of innovation-related options. We organise workshops and events that help increase participation around issues such as design, trends, innovation and design thinking.
