Sugar Fall Presentation @ HPI

The Design Thinking teams are ready to present their first findings! After a successful start and an amazing SUGAR Global Kick-Off event in China, the students have put their effort, time and passion into the projects. SUGAR is the world's largest network for human-centered innovation that brings together students, universities and renowned companies to find solutions for real-world problems by applying the Design Thinking approach. 

This year, the Hasso Plattner Institute hosts the local SUGAR Fall Presentation. In Potsdam, 12 teams from 9 universities will show their first research, findings, and prototypes. Below you find the agenda for the event, which takes place on Monday, the 9th of December, in Lecture Hall 1.
