DesignLab highlights of 2020 What a year it has been

Together with organisations and companies outside the University of Twente, students, Research Fellows, DesignLab researchers, the DreamTeam and staff, we've proven that combining disciplines results in impactful solutions. Challenges trigger to develop new but responsible concepts. Sometimes online, sometimes in a hybrid way. And as Citizen Science is growing fast, relevant data is growing too.

As we are counting down the days, here's a nice overview of everything that happened this year, in which DesignLab participated or had a significant role.
