Agile and Design Thinking for collaborative research

image 5 Agile and Design Thinking for collaborative research

This research project explores existing and potential implementations in research processes of Design Thinking methodologies, on the one hand, and of Agile frameworks on the other one. Especially in contexts related to Commons-based peer production with collaborative and action-research methods. It tries to analyze in depth how adaptations of these two different methodological frameworks can add value to adaptability, efficiency and impact in the regular tasks and dynamics of multidisciplinary research teams, as well as engaging more participants and stakeholders in an “operative openness” of the research practices themselves. The case studies are being developed in partnership with the following projects: STEM4youth, Teixidora, CECAN.
