Since 2008, Yncréa Hauts-de-France has been acquiring expertise in co-design thanks to its ADICODE® innovation and co-design facilities.
The aim of ADICODE® is to foster innovation and as such it is based on a transdisciplinary, user-driven approach, rapid prototyping, creativity and collective intelligence. This expertise is reflected in our teaching, which sees us to give students and professionals the necessary tools to undertake innovative co-design projects, and in the services we offer, which involve us working with companies to drive generation.
Yncréa Hauts-de-France has three ADICODE® sites, which are home to around a hundred innovation projects each year, and are used to carry out research into co-design and collective intelligence.
These facilities include a co-design centre and an open-plan working space for Yes! projects, led by teams of students and teaching staff-researchers, the aim of which is to create innovation by working alongside companies. Each site has a fab lab, which allows prototypes to be created and experiments to be carried out under real conditions.
