Networked Collaboration Canvas, June 25, 2013 at ICE conference, the Hague
 
In order to get a better grip on the networked nature of collaborations in PSS development a networked collaboration canvas has been developed addressing the interactions between actors and objects involved in PSS development.
CRISP # 1 magazine is published online! 
 
"Don't you design chairs anymore?" represents and discusses the changing role of designers due to their involvement in strategic issues and  the challenges that are involved in developing complex product service systems, like robots in healthcare.

Exciting companies in the CRISP network invite CRISP’s young generation researchers in a new series of events: CRISP Visits. It is an opportunity to meet CRISP partners you wouldn’t run into in the elevator, but should. These light-hearted functions are aimed at widening the scope of researchers and partners and for the researchers to meet their peers.

I published an article about robots in healthcare for the online magazine 'Waterstof' of the 'Waterlandstichting'.

After the improvement of mobility PSS Skewiel Mobiel, care provider Zorggroep Tellens decided to copy the service to the area of Littenseradiel. The official opening of Tellens Belbus will be on October 30th in Weidum.

Veylinx was recently chosen as the best 'business idea' at CRISP DRS5. With Veylinx it is possible to measure consumers' willingness to pay for a product, service or PSS by means of online auctions. Veylinx is initially developed for scientific research by Bram Kuijken from CASD, but he realized that this auction tool can also be used to conduct market research for companies.
 

In a Cross Over workshop initiated by PJ Stappers (EB), and facilitated by Remko van der Lugt (lector co-design Hogeschool Utrecht) nineteen CRISP members (project leaders, secundants and Executive Board) built an overarching picture of CRISP and themes to address by using context mapping.
