Call for Participants: THINKATHON 2019/07 NEONYT Berlin
Hot on the heels of the workshop at Techtextil & Texprocess in Frankfurt, we are excited to announce our next call for Thinkathon Participants at NEONYT on Monday 1st to Tuesday 2nd July 2019 in Berlin. The two-day collaborative workshop returns to Neonyt: the global hub for fashion, sustainability and innovation, as part of the Innovation Roadshow made up of the Thinkathon, Fashionsustain conference and Innovation Showcase.
Organised by Sourcebook and Kaleidoscope in partnership with Messe Frankfurt, the fifth edition of the Thinkathon will once again bring together teams of international experts from a range of disciplines to explore the overlap of sustainability and technology in order to find innovative solutions to challenges in the fashion and textiles industry. Previous Challenge Hosts have included Hugo Boss, Lectra, Microsoft, Otto Group and Zalando, with more top names to come.
The Thinkathon offers a unique platform for cross-disciplinary knowledge exchange where Participants develop ideas using the latest agile methods under the guidance of experienced systems thinking coaches, while receiving feedback from the Challenge Hosts along the way. Previous Participants have met future partners, clients and employees at the Thinkathon, with some of the challenges going on to kickstart R&D projects.
What’s more, all Participants get free access to Neonyt from the 2nd to 4th July, including the Fashionsustain conference where the Thinkathon concludes with a wrap-up presentation on the 3rd July – besides enjoying the networking opportunities of Berlin Fashion Week SS19.
So if you would like to participate in the Thinkathon and help shape the future of fashion, please fill out this form by Thursday 30th May!
We will let you know if your application is successful in the first half of June, for any further information please get in touch.
