Innovation in Design & Engineering - IDEE Laboratory
The Innovation in Design & Engineering Lab – IDEE Lab - has an interdisciplinary laboratory aiming to research product innovation, product-service systems and production processes, through the design and creative use of advanced production, digital and ICT technologies. The laboratory uses methodologies and tools of Design Thinking, Design Driven Innovation, Technology Driven Innovation and Experience Driven Innovation, applied to design themes related to industrial design, product design and to product-service system design.
The laboratory operates in:
IDEE Lab undertakes its activities in close collaboration with the DIDALABS system laboratories, such as the Sustainable Design Laboratory, the Design Modelling Laboratory and the Ergonomics in Design Laboratory. It cooperates with other laboratories of the University of Florence, that work on complementary issues, in particular, the Laboratory of Reverse Engineering and Virtual Prototyping (ReViP), of the Department of Industrial Engineering, and with the Laboratory of Wood Technology of the Department DAGRI. At an international level, IDEE Lab collaborates with the Human-Tech Institute, of the University of Applied Sciences and Arts of Western Switzerland.
The specific activities of Innovation in Design & Engineering Lab are:
