Openlab is a Design Thinking center where students and researchers at Karolinska Institutet, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm University and Södertörn University will take on challenges that the City of Stockholm, Stockholm County Council and the County Administrative Board are facing.
The goal is to produce proposals for solutions to complex social issues in this growing region through new interdisciplinary collaboration between traditional knowledge areas.
In November 2014, coaches from the HPI School of Design Thinking supported the Swedish colleagues in the establishment of their lab by hosting a “train the trainers” workshop led by Claudia Nicolai. The festive opening took place in February 2015.
