INNOVATION DAY 2020
The central idea of WICKIE was the development of interdisciplinary work processes, so the prerequisite was the formation of a think tank in which future-oriented solutions for innovative media technology projects were to be developed.
In the INNOVATIONSHUB, the synergies of the network partners tennagels Medientechnik, LAVAlabs Moving Images and Düsseldorf University of Applied Sciences in their core competencies of media technology, creation and science were effectively leveraged in a joint workspace.
After the virtual presentation, the partners designed a workspace that was implemented in reality. The virtual workspace, based on an adapted standard platform for joint work, supported the bridging of spatial and temporal distances of the cooperation partners. The project partners specified a structured user-centered approach for the targeted development of innovative ideas.
Thus the basis was created. Innovations could be defined, articulated and implemented in an exemplary manner. The wide range of competencies of the alliance partners led to completely new perspectives and the realization that the INNOVATIONSHUB cooperation network is an important aspect of successful innovations.
Our partners in the INNOVATIONSHUB
Running a research network involves a lot of effort and passion. With Düsseldorf University of Applied Sciences and LAVAlabs, we have successfully created a microcosm from the ranks of our own network that welcomes forward-looking thinking, social interaction and interdisciplinary work in equal measure.
We are spatially connected with both partners very successfully as well: You can find a joint AR/VR lab, motion tracking studio but also space for socializing and networking at Ackerstraße 11 in Düsseldorf.
