IRDG Design Thinking Shared Interest Group with Medtronic, Advantech & Synecco

Throughout 2020 we will continue to host our Design Thinking Shared Interest Groups along with members. These sessions are specifically for industry members who are keen to learn more about the application of design thinking in their business and seeking to benefit from the collective experience of other industry leaders. 

Design Thinking is one of IRDG’s main learning and innovation themes.  We run the annual national Design Thinking Ireland conference (Croke Park June 2020), workshops and masterclasses.  We also have a Shared Interest Group (SIG) for those who are interested in leveraging design thinking as a process to support innovation and problem solving.  The SIG brings together a diverse group of people from across industry to collaborate and share experiences.  The first SIG event of 2020 is being hosted at the Medtronic Customer Innovation Centre in Galway on 27th February.    

What’s on the agenda?

  • Tea & Coffee & Refreshments
  • Introductions & welcomes
  • Human Centred Innovation with Medtronic
  • Applied use of Design Thinking in Advantech, Galway

Who should attend?

This Shared Interest Group session is relevant to innovation leaders and practitioners from all industries who are seeking to share and improve their knowledge and experience of design thinking and innovation best practice. It also offers a great opportunity to network with like-minded innovation leaders from a wide range of cross-sectoral businesses.
