XCreation-Workshop: Aviation & Creative Industries

An event of the Cross Innovation Hub and gamecity:Hamburg in cooperation with ZAL - Zentrum für Angewandte Luftfahrtforschung:

VR simulations for flight staff training or AR applications that playfully lead through the processes of turbine maintenance - how can these techniques be used in aeronautical research to optimize processes? How can gamification tools be used to provide practical solutions? The Cross Innovation Hub, gamecity:Hamburg and the Center of Applied Aeronautical Research invite you to the XCreation-Workshop to explore the innovation potential of collaboration between aeronautical research and the creative industry: Within one day, interdisciplinary teams will develop innovative project ideas at the intersection of aviation and gamification.



Who we are looking for:

XCreation is aimed at experts from aeronautics research as well as creative professionals, especially from the fields of games, software, VR/AR, design (e.g. Motion and UX Design), film and the performing arts.

The registration deadline is December 2.

Please, register here: EVENTBRITE.



The schedule:

After a short networking session, the day starts with two keynote speeches introducing the topic and providing a basis for the ideation- and team-building phases: Besides insights into the challenges of aeronautical research, Tahsin Avci from the digital agency Pop Rocket Labs will give input on the question "How Gamification can promote intrinsic motivation". A moderated ideation process follows the methodically driven team-building process: Using the Design Studio method, the participants develop and concretize project ideas at the interface of aviation and gamification in a collaborative process. There will be the opportunity to refine the ideas developed in the workshop together with ZAL and the Cross Innovation Hub in a follow-up format.

For registration, please select your ticket type according to your industry sector.
