Quadruple Helix Modell for Multi-Stakeholder-Dialogue in regional development projetcs
FieldTrip of the Students from the University of Applied Sciences Magdeburg within their project: Magdeburg: European Capital of Culture 2025 (ECOC)

The aim of this 3-semester long project led by Prof. Dr. Anke Trommershausen and Daniela Marzavan is to enhance the sustainable participation of the FH Magdeburg in the application of the city of Magdeburg to become European Capital of Culture in 2025.

Hereby the projects that will be implemented in the city by the students should have an impact on its citizens beyond the ECOC application and therefore facilitate the sustainable dialogue between Industry, Policy, Science and Civil Society.

Throughout the Design Thinking process the students defined the challenge applying qualitative research methods, then focused on four personae each representing one Helix and developed ideas, that will be presented an discussed at the Waterkant festival. The feedback will be passed along to the students from the next semester who will implement the ideas in the city of Magdeburg.
Furthermore we used the concept of the Quadruple Helix Modell (Carayanis/Grigoroudis 2016) for sustainable regional development in a Multi-Stakeholder-Dialogue to make sense of the data and create human-centered innovative ideas.

Are you interested in applying the Open Innovation Model of Quadruple Helix to your own regional development project, or what to learn more about using Design Thinking in teaching assignments? Were you involved in the ECOC application of a city or in students projects that continued existing beyond the course (like www.deinraum.sh or the  Waterkant Festival)?  Or do you simply want to give our students constructive feedback? Then please join our session!

Privacy and Innovation: There is more than one future.
Privacy is not an obstacle to innovation. Doubtful? Thing is, there is more than one future. And it's up to us to make sure that we steering towards a positive one. While it's not going to be a quick fix, it's possible -- and in this talk we will stretch our imagination together, analysing what is, identifying what needs to change, and envisioning what we want instead. Because if privacy is the renewable energy of our digital societies, we have to learn how to hone and strengthen it.

How to learn with fun. Neuroscientific arguments
"Learning is about motivation. It is dependent on reward signals. The more we enjoy learning, the more effective it becomes." Michael Kohl teaches and researches at the Institute for Neurosciences at Oxford University. He is interested in how we learn, more precisely: how the brain codes and processes information. In his keynote he will tell us what role motivation, fun and reward play in this process.

"Lernen ist eng mit Motivation und Belohnung verbunden. Je mehr Freude wir am Lernen haben, desto effektiver wird es." Michael Kohl lehrt und forscht am Institut für Neurowissenschaften der Universität Oxford. Ihn interessiert, wie wir lernen, genauer: wie das Gehirn Informationen codiert und prozessiert. Welche Rolle dabei Motivation, Spass und Belohnung spielen, wird er uns in seiner Keynote verraten.

Ein Jahr DSGVO und seine Auswirkungen
Seit dem 25. Mai 2018 wird die Datenschutz-Grundverordnung (DSGVO) in der gesamten EU angewendet und es folgte ein Maß an Irritation, Panik und Verwirrung, wie es auch Aufsichtsbehörden nicht erwartet hatten. Viel Quatsch wurde behauptet, es wurde über Klingelschilder gestritten, Kindergesichter in KiTa-Alben geschwärzt und lange Datenschutzerklärungen am Telefon vorgelesen. Jetzt ist ein Jahr vergangen und die Wogen haben sich geglättet. Henry Krasemann zieht als juristischer Mitarbeiter der Datenschutz-Aufsichtsbehörde Schleswig-Holstein (Unabhängiges Landeszentrum für Datenschutz SH - ULD) ein Zwischenfazit und zeigt noch einmal einige der größten Inrrtümer auf.
