More and more our environmental and societal challenges become increasingly complex. Collaborative, holistic approaches and horizontal management skills across organizational and sometimes even national borders are needed to handle a growing complexity, with less resources and making full use of the potential in new technology development.

This workshop provides a first introduction to the governance of cross-disciplinary processes, working in teams in order to develop a strategy for defined societal challenges. The workshop takes 4 hours and the preferred number of participants is 4-25.

Birthplace of the Swedish IT wonder

Kista has been home to one of the leading ICT clusters in the world since it introduced triple helix collaboration some years back, allowing academia, industry and the public sector to join forces here. Kista is a unique example of successful cross-disciplinary urban planning, and is today teeming with creative and competent actors in many growing start-ups and SMEs that are developing innovative products and services. Several large, international companies in the IT and telecom sectors have chosen to place their headquarters and regional offices here, for example Ericsson and IBM. 

At Stockholm Discovery, we are passionate about spreading knowledge about successful and sustainable innovations and we would like to serve as inspiration for the construction of responsible and inclusive urban environments.
