The Humanitarian Innovation and Design seminar took place at the department of product design at NTNU the 11th of March.
A major part of the seminar was allocated to brief presentations, with following questions and discussions. A final group work session elaborated upon the questions that had emerged during the day. A significant part of the discussions was related to education and research at NTNU within the topic of humanitarian innovation, including:
- HUMANITARIAN PROJECT INVENTORY: Within NTNU as well as nationally there is no inventory of researchers or projects relating to humanitarian innovation. Connecting people working with similar issues would be an asset for a HI Lab.
- CONTEXTUALIZATION COURSES: The topic of contextualization had been brought up by one presentation about an energy project in Ethiopia and a resulting discussion was concerned with how the different departments can better collaborate regarding field research and preparations for field work.
