Design Innovation Workshop 2012, Delhi

The MIT Media Lab joined hands with the Apeejay Stya University to host the second Design & Innovation workshop on the Apeejay Campus, Sheikh Sarai, New Delhi, India on March 26-30, 2012. This workshop aimed to engage and inspire students, academics, and members of industry participants across all disciplines in inventing the future. The week-long workshop engaged participants in ideation, design, and implementation of prototypes with MIT Media Lab and local mentors. The workshop culminated in a plenary conference and exhibition that was open to visitors from academia, industry leaders, and the press. The workshop had been designed around the MIT Media Lab philosophy, where the future is lived, not imagined. In a world where radical technology advances are taken for granted, Media Lab researchers design technologies for people to create a better future. The Media Lab culture of research involves working closely with industry. We believe this workshop offered participants and attendees a flavor of how the Media Lab invents the future.
