The Royal College of Art's Innovation Department were launching a new student challenge programme on the topic of ‘The Future of Work’ and they wanted to encourage students to participate. The aim of the programme was to engage students to think about the impact of artificial intelligence and automation on the future of work, and to consider what products and services we might need to create in order to adapt to that future.
What did we do?
We devised an event series that kick-started the programme and generated interest in the topic by bringing together headline thinkers, innovators and pioneers at the cutting edge of new approaches and technologies focused on the future of work.
The event series also included a practical workshop, where our speakers helped students develop their ideas and connected them with other innovators who could assist them through the challenge process.
The programme is now running successfully in its second year, with a focus on regenerating cities.
