Over the two days 18-19.06.2019, the partners of the Restart BSR project are participant in a seminar 1 in Denmark. The host was Design School Kolding.

The purpose of this first WP2 seminar was to:

  • Learn about Danish Early Warning experiences from Peter Bausager and Haimin Wong-Sung
  • Establish common ground for the project, frame the challenges and reach a common understanding of existing knowledge and potentials.
  • Identify and understand end-user needs.
  • Prepare field work to be carried out in each country.

The central question we were trying to answer was:

How might we save business people in crises with empathy and respect in the Baltic countries?

Securing relevant knowledge about the experience from the Early Warning programme, the seminar started with two presentations. First, by Henrik Noes, who instigated the Restart BSR project, and then with a consultant, Peter Bausager, and a mentor, Haimin Wung-Sung, from Early Warning Denmark.

Based on the group work and discussions at the seminar, we identified a need for the group to examine, through fieldwork in each country, the following questions:

  • What is unique to the Baltic countries?
  • Do our assumptions match reality in the four countries?
  • What are the needs of the four main groups of stakeholders:
    • Innovation actor / consultant
    • Mentor
    • Company in crisis
    • Restarter

The fieldwork was carried out in different ways in the different countries, taking into account the different situations. At the next seminar, we will process and analyse the raw data gathered in the field studies.
