After Workshop 1 an open call was advertised towards looking for participants in this second event. Around 180 candidates from 20 countries applied. The profiles and backgrounds are very diverse according to the age, gender, and field of specialisation. An interesting fact is the hybrid profiles with skills from both artistic and scientific backgrounds: AI, architecture, music, visual arts, textile design, IT and sound experts –amongst many.
Once chosen, in September the group of participants will have to defined and deploy their ideas to show to the audience. This phase is followed by the Lean start-up concept and no final products are expected, just the Minimum Valuable Product (MVP) concept is followed aiming at detecting: new user requirements, novel, good and bad ideas, limitations and potential opportunities, new challenges and even new use cases.
