Supporting Event - Design Thinking and Innovation Week by ZHdk x HKDI

Hong Kong Design Institute (HKDI) collaborates with Zurich University of the Arts (ZHdK), a leading University renowned for its long design tradition and innovation potential. ZHDK still produces worldwide acclaimed design talents and innovations. Fostering this, it has a broad range of teaching experts. Design as a discipline has the power to tackle problems by using Design Strategies and Design Thinking.

 The objective of the four day program is to advance the application of design methods in resolving complex real life problems in the commercial world and the society at large beyond the design domain. As cornerstones, the four day program (4 seminars & 12 workshops) touches Design & Economy, Design & Identity, Design & Society, Design &Technology. With this we target the managerial level executives, creative industries, public services, and educators from primary through tertiary institutions, to echo the Hong Kong government’s recent initiative. This strategic partnership aims at building Hong Kong as a hub of a future oriented design culture, embedding design methods, design thinking and design strategies in Asia.
