Service Design Lab

During the Picnic cross-media conference in Amsterdam (24-26 september 2008) we have hosted a Service Design Lab. In a 4-hour workshop program 30 the participants worked in sub-groups on new ideas for service innovation for one of Amsterdam’s local governments. This lab coincided with the formal launch of the Service Design Netwerk Nederland. STBY has initiated this network, together with 31Volts, DesignThinkers, Eden Design & Communication, ICATT and Creative Cities Amsterdam Area. (NL, 2008)
