Design Thinking is a process that helps people understand and develop creative ways to solve a specific issue.

Join a team of scientists, communicators, designers and innovators at Science Gallery Dublin in a Design Thinking challenge to address three key issues in health and science communication. Registration is free for anyone who works in the area of STEM or STEM communication, and is intended to introduce you to a process that will help you radically change the way you approach problems in the future. ESB: How can we encourage organisations to use energy more efficiently? Repak: How can policy makers, waste collectors, producers and consumers improve on the recycling of plastic packaging waste to meet targets? Novartis: How can we make the workplace environment and culture more migraine friendly?


The workshop will be run with an open source spirit.

The purpose is to demonstrate the Design Thinking process using real world examples, rather than solve specific problems for the organisations contributing. Teams and individuals are encouraged to continue to develop their ideas after the event.
