Welcome

IGNITE is an EU-funded initiative that unites academic institutions and creative industry partners from three countries to create an open-source, online course to be delivered via the #dariahTeach platform.

From April 2018 to July 2020, the IGNITE project will develop a 20 ECTS course entitled ‘Design Thinking & Making in the Arts and Sciences’, divided into 5 ECTS units which can be taken together or independently. It will be taught within Masters programmes at Aarhus (Denmark) and Maastricht (The Netherlands) Universities. Beginning in spring 2019, the consortium will be inviting people to take the units online and in F2F focus groups. In spring 2020 the project will host a final dissemination event and masterclass in Vienna.
