"For the Senate Department for Economics, Energy and Public Enterprises, the co-creation and design thinking process was a new approach and way of thinking. Design Thinking has helped us, as a funding agency, to position ourselves in the perspective of the user or applicant. This gave us a different view of certain topics and questions. The IDZ and 5Wx supported and convinced us with their expertise in the field of moderation and methodological knowledge".

"Being able to fall asleep when one is tired and being able to let off a weight that has been lugged for a long time, is a delight, a marvellous fact."
(Hermann Hesse)

We say goodbye to the long-time director of the IDZ, our always inspiring colleague and dear friend Cornelia Horsch. With her positive attitude to life, her humour and her unbridled energy, she has left a lasting impression on the IDZ.
