The InnoChain network is a shared research training environment examining how advances in digital design tools challenge building culture enabling sustainable, informed and materially smart design solutions. Between 7th and 8th of March 2017, the First Year Colloquium of InnoChain will take place in Vienna. It is a shared evaluation event in which all early stage researchers (ESRs) present their research questions and methodologies and Efilena Baseta, as an Innochain ESR of Angewandte, will present her research ‘Simulating Anisotropic Material’.
Moreover, design probes of all ESRs will be exhibited in Angewandte Innovation Laboratory until the 20th of March. The exhibition has been designed by Noumena, in collaboration with Angewandte and Karamba team.

The Colloquium is organised around three sessions presenting the three Work Packages, where keynote speakers will give a lecture to open up each research field:

– WP3 Communicating Design
– WP4 Simulating for Design
– WP5 Materialising Design


See below the detailed programme of the event:
