An introduction into the experiment performed in summer on the effect of warming-up of audience participation in dance. A scientific account of this experiments follows later.

On the 6th of March, Design Academy Eindhoven, Waag Society and Keio University SFC from Tokyo organized an exciting workshop at de Waag in Amsterdam. Daijiro Mizuno offered a tool to zoom in and out on the different levels of Product Service Systems, while using the Fablab's facilities and food as a topic Ã¡nd as prototyping material.

At Undercurrent, floating but docked on the north embankment of Amsterdam's IJ, CRISP's fourth Design Review Sessions marks the mid point of its four-year programme. Introduction and keynote speeches highlighted an especially proactive day filled with project presentations, discussions, and networking between all members of the eight different CRISP projects.

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.
Halfway our workshop in Amsterdam during the WDCD break out sessions, the conference photographer came down from the stairs, sniffing, to ask why he was suddenly confronted with the smell of his winter coat on a damp day.

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.

SELEMCA’s Robert Paauwe was invited to the Glasgow School of Art to teach 18 students (Product Design, year 2) about interactive prototyping using Arduino. Starting at the 18th of November, the students had five days to design and create a working prototype.

How to combine the knowledge gained from the individual CRISP projects into integrated program-spanning insights? The individual CRISP projects are productive, but there is a lack of ‘glue’ between the projects.

Reaction from Pepijn Rijnbout, PhD candidate at Playful Interactions at TU/e: “The collaboration between science and business was discussed multiple times at the CRISP Visits to Ranj. Ranj is a dynamic company in which most projects do not have a long timespan.
