Masterclass + Design Sprint

Design and Technology Transfer for Search & Rescue

4-7 May 2021

Living on a remote volcanic island and in a coastal environment brings its challenges, such as possible rapid weather changes, extreme weather conditions and natural hazards. In order to respond to harsh conditions and emergencies in the best way possible, it's important to design and develop reliable and optimised products, services and systems which can prevent accidents and save human lives + other valuables.

We stimulate designers, engineers, researchers and employees of Icelandic Universities and public research organisations to join for our workshop. We´ll form multi-disciplinary teams that will work on developing resilient solutions for the challenging operations of Search & Rescue teams.

There will be inspiring lectures, exercises and participants will work closely together with the national SAR-team in Iceland and other highly-skilled professionals with expertise in design for extreme environments as well as technology transfer. Several prizes can be won from 66°NORTH and we´ll even have a call with famous rescuer/explorer Dan Mazur straight from Mt. Everest. This event is a great opportunity for networking and for getting support in bringing your innovative projects to the market.

The workshop is organised by Auðna – Technology Transfer Office Iceland in collaboration with the Icelandic Association for Search & Rescue (ICE-SAR), Arctic Council EPPR working group, European Space Agency (ESA) Space Solutions, 66°NORTH, Summit Climb, Icelandic University of the Arts, Kwantlen Polytecnic University and highly-skilled professionals with expertise in design for extreme environments as well as technology transfer.
