A3 CBI


A3 Challenge Based Innovation (CBI) is a programme in partnership with CERN, in which students are given a chance to develop projects that propose new physical, digital or experiential applications that aim to increase the impact of CERN science. Interdisciplinary teams of product design students and engineering students from diverse fields will work together and learn a range of design innovation methods that will aid them in the development of such projects.

This programme is aimed at Masters or final year Bachelor's students.

Although teams are not international, CBI happens in several universities and students will share their project development and build on top of each other's ideas.

 

Challenge brief:

Connect Sustainable Development Goals to CERN technology using a range of design innovation methods to propose new physical, digital or experiential applications that aim to increase the impact of CERN science. 

 

Duration:

Mid-October 2017 to mid-April 2018

 

Learning Objectives:

-       Apply design research methods to inform creative problem solving aimed at increasing the impact of science or technology-based research.

-       Evaluate the nature of a piece of science or technology and articulate it’s potential characteristics that could benefit or add value to a designed application.

-       Contribute to an innovation culture through strategies such as low hierarchy, inclusive decision making, open mind-set and empathetic approaches to collaboration activities.

-       Implement a range of innovation methods to explore design ideas aimed to increase the societal and/or commercial value of a specific piece of science or technology. 

-       Source expertise required to address knowledge gaps in understanding viability, desirability and feasibility of proposed applications for science and technology research.

-       Communicate effectively to a broad audience, the value of different science and technology research using appropriate visual techniques.

-       Rationalise holistic design outcomes aimed to increase the societal and/or commercial value of a specific research and development project related to science and/or technology. 

-       Define implementation strategies, including identifying further research and development required, to execute design outcomes developed for science and/or technology research.

 

Deliverables and Outcomes:

-       Progress Video documentation of project. 

-       Idea development journal, including user testing.

-       Final report & prototype demonstrating & justifying designed outcome and implementation plan.

-       Showcase final video/presentation.
