Innovation Labs are sessions that bring together people from business and academia, diverse sectors and disciplines to respond to current challenges in areas such as AI, data and ethics, but also sustainability, healthcare, placemaking, fintech and more. These participatory, collaborative sessions use creative methodologies and processes and create highly engaging, conversational and exciting spaces to bring results and approaches that have radical impacts on participating individuals, businesses and organisations.
Our Innovation Labs take the structure of an open, artistic process to enable participants to ask questions, share ideas and explore different perspectives. The Labs create opportunities for bringing together people from different sectors to discuss common challenges and co-design ideas and approaches to tackle them. These sessions build the foundations for participants to take their collective responses and initial prototyping further, and develop collaborative solutions and projects.
Since 2019 Innovation Labs have enabled creative connections, knowledge exchange and collaborations between researchers, scholars and professionals in sectors such as transport, pharmaceutical, communications, energy and more in overcoming a variety of small and large challenges.
FutureEverything has been working in collaboration with and across different sectors using creativity as a tool to create solutions and expand learning. Innovation Labs is an ongoing programme that FutureEverything has built to provide connecting routes between sectors and enable opportunities for collaborations to happen.
