Innovation and Design for European Engineering Education Conference

IDEEE (Innovation and Design for European Engineering Education)  is an EELISA community which aims at building a network of scholars, professors, practitioners and public manager to develop innovation and design in engineering education relying on most advanced practices and scientific model to prepare engineers and scientists to design a better future.

A growing consensus is developing in the design community that we collectively need new design paradigms to face current challenges. Indeed, from one side, we are currently in a period of intensive innovation characterized be an acceleration of the renewal of product and services. On the other side, the current transitions ahead of us (energetic, demographic, numeric…), call for the implementation of new design practices by engineers, scientists and managers.

Historically, unprecedent needs for new design activities led to a renewal of both design theories and engineering corpus. The IDEEE community reflects upon the current evolutions of innovation and design in european engineering education through the organisation of regular thematic-based conferences.


May the 10th from 4pm to 6pm (CEST)

In the second conference of the IDEEE Community, we explore new ways of articulating design with engineering education. To do so, we invited Aldert Kamp, Immediate past Director of Education TU Delft and 4TU.Centre for Engineering Education and Olivier Potier from University of Lorraine.

Aldert Kamp will deliver a lecture entitled « How else can we think about the key elements of higher engineering education? »
Olivier Potier will deliver a lecture entitled «  How design theory supports chemical engineering teaching and learning: empirical evidence from a French school of engineering » 


The conference is open to all public who is interesting in the future of European engineering education.

The event will take place ONLINE.  Please register with the form on the right column.

The link will be recevied few days before the conference. 


In this first online conference of the IDEEE community, we tackle our question from an industrial point of view. We focus on identifying the new design needs of industrial companies and the future those needs entail. To do so, we invited two industrial observers of the current transformations: Natasha Eckert from Siemens and Sébastien Massard from Dassault Systèmes.
