As drivers of innovation, the Hasso Plattner Institute and its School of Design Thinking have successfully shaped the future of learning and work. Since its opening in 2007, the HPI D-School has enabled more than 3,000 students to gain an innovative mindset and develop human-centered solutions with an impact. The HPI Academy has trained more than 10,000 professionals. Let's gather in September to review the highlights of the last 15 years of Design Thinking activities at HPI and discuss how we can further shape business and society with the innovation approach!
The "Design Thinking ImpAct Conference: 15 Years of Design Thinking at HPI" will take place in a hybrid format.
