Participation in ‘Contextmapping Skills’ is open to all MSc students who believe that end-users are important sources of information for leading new product development.

Contextmapping is a design (research) method for including users and other stakeholders in a design process as ‘expert of their experience’. By applying generative techniques in the research process, underlying needs, motivations and dreams can be discovered. Over the past decade, the method and its underlying principles and theories have been developed at TU Delft in close collaboration with Dutch and international researchers and practitioners. This development has been done in about a dozen PhD projects, hundreds of MSc projects, and two (online) masterclasses, most of these in close collaboration with industry (see http://studiolab.ide.tudelft.nl/studiolab/contextmapping/resources/).
