Inspiring and envisioning purposeful Human-Technology relationships


Politecnico di Milano – Campus Bovisa Durando


One year after the start of the HumanTech project, the Department organizes a day of awareness, engagement, inspiration, and brainstorming regarding this ambitious and important project; the event will be the right occasion for discovering the new laboratories as well as having the opportunity to learn more about the research that is ongoing at the Department.
In the morning, the event will host a group of outstanding figures to discuss with them the challenges and opportunities stemming from the latest trends in Human-Technology interactions, while in the early afternoon guests will break up according to personal interests, to visit the new laboratories, stimulate research ideas and foster collaboration.
The day will conclude with a closing plenary to discuss the HumanTech Manifesto and then celebrate with a moment of happy hour and networking.
