Silvia Grimaldi together with Alison Prendiville and Rosie Hornbuckle designed and facilitated bespoke co-design workshops involving participants from Pharma Factory SMEs and academic institutions to understand how they perceive the value of the new technologies to a range of stakeholders.
The co-design methods used are presented in this new short film, which explains their purpose and relevance to the broader project: https://files.cargocollective.com/c179491/Pharma_Factory_3_minutes_720p.mp4
