Hasso-Plattner-Institut, Potsdam

14 – 16 September 2017



The concept of design thinking is based on the assumption that problems can be solved more effectively if professionals from different disciplines meet one another in an inspiring space and work together to find a solution. The Hasso-Plattner-Institut (HPI) wants to offer this space with its D.confestival which runs from 14 to 16 September 2017. 


To mark the HPI School of Design Thinking’s tenth anniversary, up to 800 guests have been invited to participate in an intensive programme of presentations, workshops, exhibitions, activities and special events.

The themes of the presentations cover a broad spectrum ranging from the new potential offered by digitalisation to future mobility to business models and neurobiological processes. At the forefont, there is an ongoing opportunity for open and creative communication.

There are numerous workshops in which participants can test out which methods help them best in a creative process. Workshop participants will work with industry leaders through the challenges involved in a constantly changing market. The focus here will be on mutual pooling of experience and learning from one another.

Tickets for the festival can be ordered from the website. Student tickets cost 300 euros. Companies which do not belong to the School’s network are offered tickets for 1,030 euros each.
