On February 26-27 our Faculty of Architecture together with WUT’s Center of Innovation Management and Technology Transfer held the international scientific conference – ASK.the.Conference 2016.
The conference’s first edition entitled „Education for Research, Research for Creativity” aimed to explore the role of research in the creative practice and the education of architecture and spatial planners. It emphasized the needs of the society of knowledge related to environmental awareness driven by IT in the foreground. Supported by Research By Design, the themes combined academia and practice for the creative transformation of our living space.
The conference gathered 46 active participants including 16 representing international scientific institutions. The event provided an opportinity to showcase good practices and innovative approaches to research and teaching in the field of architecture and urban design.
The conference was also a good occasion to present our ASK team’s work on development of the brand new PhD curriculum, soon to be launched on the Faculty of Architecture.
The conference was organized as part of the „Architecture for Society of Knowledge – ASK – english-speaking doctoral course at the Faculty of Architecture, Warsaw University of Technology” project, supported by a grant from Norway through Norway Grants and co-financed by the Polish funds.
