INTERACCT is a project where two universities in Vienna (University of Applied Arts Vienna: Institute of Art Sciences and Art Education; Department of Design; Architecture and Environment for Education; University of Vienna: Faculty of Informatics; Computer Science Didactics and Learning Research; and Research Group Entertainment Computing); CCRI (Childrens´ Cancer Research Institute); children of an Austrian high school (Schulschiff Bertha von Suttner) and Tsystems (a division of Deutsche Telekom; systems integration; computing and network services and e-business) have been involved within the Applied Design Thinking LAB Vienna from 2009 until today. Aim of the project is to enhance interdisciplinary and participatory approaches in design and technology education. Case study is design of an interactive web based communication platform for improving quality of life for the patients of the stemcell-lab department (SCT-INTERACT) and to improve medical communication and education in outpatient care after pediatric hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (SCT). Spin-off is design of a serious game where healthy and malignant children are participatory involved as well as the students of different teaching subjects (informatics; art and design education); the caring medical staff and the industry partner.
