This session will explore the challenges of connecting engineering education and practice with other disciplines, in order to solve “wicked problems”. In particular, the session will focus on the possibilities (and the need) for engineering to connect with social sciences such as anthropology, sociology and design thinking.
For this, we will have the honour to welcome as a keynote speaker Dr. Banny Banerjee from the ChangeLab at Stanford University, where he conducts trans-disciplinary work combining design thinking, technology strategy, business innovation, applied social psychology, behavioural economics, diffusion theory, and resilience theory.
