Welcome to Service Design for Socially Innovative Services
This PhD course will focus on the contribution of service design to social innovation initiatives. Such initiatives are often generated by spontaneous actions of individuals or groups of citizens, but the contribution of service designers may help providing them with a structure, a consolidated service system and can even create the basis for their scalability.
For this reason the intersection between service design and social innovation represents an interesting ground for research.
This workshop will be connected with the ServDes 2016 conference, which will take place at AAU – CPH from the 24th to the 26th of May 2016. The PhD course will start one day before, with the presentation from some relevant speakers.
The PhD course is also connected to the activities of the DESIS network. The network, which include Aalborg University, brings together schools and research centers that are working on Design for Social Innovation and Sustainability. Several participants will come from the institutions connected with this network.
The course will include a dedicated full day and the participation to a 3-days conference on Service Design (ServDes2016).

Important information concerning PhD courses We have over some time experienced problems with no-show for both project and general courses. It has now reached a point where we are forced to take action. Therefore, the Doctoral School has decided to introduce a no-show fee of DKK 5,000 for each course where the student does not show up. Cancellations are accepted no later than 2 weeks before start of the course. Registered illness is of course an acceptable reason for not showing up on those days. Furthermore, all courses open for registration approximately three months before start. This can hopefully also provide new students a chance to register for courses during the year. We look forward to your registrations.
