About the event

The second edition of our Accelerate Innovation event takes place on Tuesday, June 20, from 12:00 - 18:00 at NEXT Delft on TU Delft Campus! In this edition, we will dive into the topic of knowledge sharing. At the event, you will get to know the basic principles of Design Thinking, and you will get to network with like-minded professionals with diverse backgrounds. 

Together with DSM-Firmenich, a partner in the X!LEAD programme, we've developed a case about knowledge sharing. Every organization will recognize that there isn't always enough time to document work and to keep documents updated, so employees tend to retain knowledge in their heads. To prevent potential knowledge loss and poor accessibility, we want to explore how to transform time-consuming processes of sharing, exchanging and communicating knowledge. That way, we can accelerate innovation instead of reinventing the wheel over and over again.

During an effective Design Sprint, you will work with the X!LEAD Talents, our top tech talents who impact innovation at diverse companies, to solve the innovation challenge posed by DSM-Firmenich. You will follow the process steps Discover, Define, Design, Develop, and learn new tools to get to a solution.
