UCD FOR SME Symposium

On the 10th of April in 2014 at the Hogeschool Utrecht a symposium in celebration of the doctorate degree of Christine de Lille is organized. Christine will defend her thesis on User Centered Design for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises the day before on the Delft University of Technology. The day of the symposium will be filled with workshops and guest speakers from the academic and professional world.

The symposium allows owners of Small and Middle-size Enterprises (SME) get in contact with design agencies. This way it becomes clear how design agencies can support Small and Middle-size Enterprises and how they can contribute in the involvement of users and customers in the design process. This is rather interesting and helpful when looking at the exploration of new market opportunities. It also helps to put the current practice of SME in a new light.

The symposium is at the Oudenoord 700, at which Christine de Lille started her doctorate at the readership of Co-Design.

You can register and buy tickets for the symposium on the website of UCDforSME.

Kind regards,

Christine De Lille and Remko van der Lugt

What to expect?

The symposium will kick off at 14.00 with a short introduction of all speakers. However, at 11.00 you can already attend a workshop in which you can experience User Centered Design yourself.  These workshops will be facilitated by several partners that are involved in User Centered Design techniques.
