Are you interested in connecting with others and exploring new ways of thinking? This is the first of three 90-minute Micro Labs designed to kickstart new ideas and teams. Through a deliberate process, participants are able suggest ideas, refine ideas, vote on ideas, and recognize idea champions to move concepts forward. The topics were chosen from last year’s Bold Ideas for Big Challenges competition. The science presenter is Gabriele Villarini (Director, IIHR; Professor, Civil and Environmental Engineering). These Micro Labs are facilitated by Knowinnovation.
