Come to the Kyoto Design Thinking EXPO

June 30, 2021

The Kyoto Design Thinking EXPO is the final event in the nine-month international design innovation program, ME310/SUGAR.

See students present their work, try out their prototypes, ask them about their experiences in the program, hear an industry leader's thoughts on innovation. Whether you're a student or in industry, find out how you can be part of ME310/SUGAR.

ME310/SUGAR 2020-21 started with an on-line global kickoff in October. It had an on-line global EXPO in June, and now culminates with an in-person (and on-line) local EXPO on 9 July 2021 at the Kyoto Institute of Technology.

【What is ME310/SUGAR?】

ME310/SUGAR is a program where students from universities around the world take on innovation challenges posed by global companies using design thinking methodologies. In nine months, student teams start from a broadly defined brief and develop a refined concept with a functional prototype, not just a series of post-its or ideas. Many of the prototypes from ME310/SUGAR have been further developed by the partner companies and released into the market.The program originated at Stanford University and has spread around the world to over twenty universities on five continents. The number of students worldwide has increased fivefold over the last ten years, but KIT is the only Japanese university in the network.For more information about ME310/SUGAR please click here
