The first full pilot workshop of the method took place at the Dartmoor National Park, UK. The delegates of project partner companies took place in this mutual learning experience - learning to understand the innovation while being taken away from daily routines. The workshop consisted of an inspiring hiking under the pouring rain in the Dartmoor National Park, with observing examples of ancient and modern innovation on the way, as well as the wrap up session with case studies discussion afterwards.
