Creating 010 is a Research Centre that focuses on transformations in society that are related to ongoing digitisation and to developments in the field of information and communication technology. Creating 010’s research always considers people within their social context. Designers, developers and appliers of technology all play an important role in this regard; the choices they make allow them to address the often difficult challenges posed by technology, for example by opting for secure data storage and open source software. They are also in a position to shape future developments, by considering the needs of users, stakeholders and society at large in the design of not only products and services, but also shopping districts and cities. This is also the perspective from which Creating 010 contributes to the development of innovative educational concepts.
