GETM3 Sandpit Event


Northern Design Centre

Research Development, Knowledge Exchange, Impact and Integration.

Innovation Sandpit

Innovation sandpits are exploratory, design-led, multidisciplinary workshops focused on defining, unpacking and exploring complex challenges. The purpose of this first GETM3 Sandpit is to reveal our collective knowledge, experience, networks, assumptions and ideas that relate to the programme’s three primary constituencies: graduates, employers and academia. We will deploy these resources to envisage what success will look like at the end of the programme. During the Sandpit we will start to establish shared understandings, aligning ways of working, and agreeing a roadmap of milestones and outputs that will contribute to the project’s success.

The Sandpit event will be facilitated by Northumbria’s design-led innovation expert academics together with their Innovators in Residence and postgraduate students of the Multidisciplinary Innovation programme. All you need to bring with you is an open-mind and willingness to participate.

Over three days in May a community of local and international scholars, employers and students with a shared interest in global entrepreneurial talent management will come together at the Northern Design Centre in Gateshead. Our purpose is to produce sets of actionable plans. Our plans will be based upon revealing our collective understanding, the creative tensions we perceive, and our compelling visions of success.
