During one week, Dodesign and Brems (Halen, BE) challenge the students of the MAD faculty to seek more applications for the sustainable Scandinavion pinewood ThermoWood. The design tool of DoDesign will be used for the first time to create innovative (and sustainable) designs by combining or using materials and techniques in a new way.


Dodesign is an EFRO-project that resulted out of the collaboration with the research institute of the MAD-faculty and Design Platform Limburg and with the partners MRC (KULeuven) and REcentre. The goal of this project is to develop an online design tool that can assist designers and companies in their search for materials and techniques, and stimulate them to innovate by making new combinations between materials and techniques.


Three forums are being organised in Heerlen, Aachen and Hasselt under the title, NEW or NOTROPOLIS. What is the future of the POLIS and does the Meuse-Rhine Euregional context provide us with the right starting point?

The first forum is planned on the 12th of April 2012. Registration is required!
