This week at Service Design Drinks Cologne, Daniela Beyerle and Jan Schröder will talk about the topic of “Digital Inclusion” from two different angles – based on their work at minds & makers and in the PIKSL Lab they will discuss the potentials and challenges of digitalization in the field of inclusion services.
