Creativity and Design in Tech

You will meet innovators, who are experts in tech and using design and creativity to create uniqueness. Gain insights into their creative processes, learn about groundbreaking projects, and discover the future of innovation. There is so much diversity when it comes to working in technology and with this event we want to showcase that being creative and thinking outside the box are skills that are valuable when working in tech.

It is the perfect event for high-school and uni students to get inspired and meet role models but also for adults that are eager to explore the possibilities in tech.
