Playroom + Augsburg University of Applied Sciences
The experts at Playroom have developed the InToSpace. „InTo“ stands for „Innovate Together“. This already describes the purpose of this innovation space. In the InToSpace, students learn new methodologies. Project teams can work on specific topics and tasks. External companies and public institutions can rent the space for workshops on innovation and development topics.
The InToSpace can be modularly adapted for the use of different methods. For example, in the field of Design Thinking for the further development of existing solutions. Or with the approach of Futures Thinking, which takes up current trends as a basis for the development of internal innovations. University employees are trained in the relevant methods in train-the- trainer sessions.
We want to develop an innovation mindset internally and make the benefits of science more tangible for business and society in our region.
The InToSpace is not only intended to help the university as an important element in the further development of its own ideation and innovation processes.
It also serves as a space where agile working and the advantages of New Work can be experienced by science, business and also public service providers.
