The PhD Special Seminar of “ServDes.2018 Proof of Concept” Conference (June 18-20, 2018, Politecnico di Milano) has been a unique space dedicated to PhD candidates and Early Career Researchers within the Conference. It aimed to be an occasion of reflection on the different nuances that guide service design research to further discussion on the topics launched by the conference, conceived with the ambition to build a connection with the contents and the structure of the conference itself and, especially, with the ambition to strengthen the growing international community around the Service Design discipline. It has been curated and managed by a team of PhD candidates and young doctors of the PhD programme in Design of Politecnico di Milano - Design Department, with the support of the ServDes.2018 management and organization team.
