PROUD aims to help and support designers to have the right knowledge and expertise to play a key role in innovation. In that context PROUD delivered various master classes across the regions for experienced co-designers and the uninitiated, exploring the fields of co-design. Knowledge and experiences were shared between designers, SME's, public officers, and researchers.
The master classes were offered in a variety of formats, from Facemooc to peer-to-peer master classes, so-called co-design café’s, as is presented in the movie below.
For the master classes Imagination Lancaster developed, in conjunction with the PROUD partners, nine principles of co-design, guidelines for designers to take into account when conducting co-design processes.
