For Project Partners
For Project Partner

Our project partners use the HPI D-School as a think-tank - and even more as a “do-tank” - to find solutions to their corporate and organizational issues. Project teams are composed of our project partners, our students and HPI D-School team members.  In 8 and 16 week projects you can develop creative, joint solutions for your real corporate problems.

Whether yours is a logistics or media company, whether it is a global player or a neighborhood association – Design Thinking helps to develop the processes, products, services and organizations of tomorrow in a way that is more creative, faster and practically oriented. Innovation-eager partners collaborate with our highly motivated and talented students. The exciting synergies and solutions created in these meetings are truly impressive.

In this overview you will find our current project partners from industry and society. Together with the student teams and teaching staff, they develop solutions to complex problems. In the best cases, participants continue to develop and expand the innovation potential afterwards in their company or organization. At the HPI D-School they get what they need to do this.

To get an idea of the challenges we are presented with by our partners, we would like to give you a glimpse of selected projects. Every semester, the HPI D-School accepts new challenges with up to 16 project partners. The questions posed come from large corporations as well as from small and medium-size businesses, public institutions and NGOs. The topics include health, energy, mobility, safety, education, finance, logistics and sustainability.
