The Master in Design for Distributed Innovation (MDDI) is a platform aimed towards empowering participants to apply innovation at the local level through a comprehensive toolkit of skills and methodologies. By joining MDDI, students will gain expertise in a wide range of tools such as AI, blockchain, biotech, and digital fabrication. The master is your gateway to immerse yourself in the vibrant global Fab Lab and Fab City communities, where experts from around the world converge in Innovation Labs, fostering fruitful collaborations, idea exchange, and lasting connections.
The programme offers innovators and changemakers the opportunity to address global challenges in their working and living contexts to enable local transformation, by learning from and adapting global knowledge. MDDI graduates will have the possibility to integrate the knowledge acquired in the program into their working environments or expand their research agenda after the program. Last year students of the master have been developing a foundational understanding of the implications of design and its relationship with natural, technological and social ecosystems. By applying methodological tools to design valuable and meaningful solutions they have developed sustainable and innovative design systems based on the reconfiguration of technology, social dynamics and resources.
