As a special feature within its broad training programme, Zollverein School is introducing the Zollverein Summer School this year from July 16 through 24. This series of events, which will be held every year during the summer months, is exclusively directed at (young) professionals from the areas of management, communications, marketing, architecture, design and consulting. Even this year’s selection of internationally-renowned lecturers shows the outstanding quality of the workshops: “Chicks on Speed” (Alex Murray-Leslie, Melissa Logan and Kiki Moorse), Francesca Ferguson (urban drift projects, Berlin), Dr. Bettina von Stamm (Innovation Leadership Forum, UK), Prof. Dr. Cordula Meier (University of Duisburg-Essen), Prof. Keiichi Sato (Institute of Design, Illinois Institute of Technology Chicago), Christopher Dell (institute for improvisation technologies, Berlin) as well as Ed Annink, (Ontwerpwerk offi ce for design, Den Haag/requested) will join forces with the participants in workshops of one, or more, days in the grounds of the World Heritage site of the former Zeche Zollverein mine in Essen.

The kick-off event on the evening of July 15 also has a first-class cast: Prof. Dr. Ralph Bruder, President of the Zollverein School, will be discussing the topic of Crossing Borders: Globalisation as an opportunity for young entrepreneurs with Philipp Bree (BREE, Isernhagen), Leo Lübke (COR, Rheda-Wiedenbrück), Philipp Thonet (Gebrüder Thonet, Frankenberg/Eder), Christian Boros (BOROS, Wuppertal) The event will be hosted by Thomas Edelmann (journalist focussing on design and architecture, Hamburg).

On July 20, Christopher Dell will be showing his skills in a performance entitled “minimal structures live”: the Reclam Jazz lexicon names him “Europe’s leading vibraphonist”.

The special event of the Zollverein Summer School 2005 on July 22 promises to be a superlative highlight: “Chicks on Speed” will be giving a happening-like concert at Zeche Zollverein.

Special, internal workshops will be organised for the Zollverein School’s MBA students, such as a course with Prof. Keiichi Sato (Institute of Design, Illinois Institute of Technology Chicago) on the topic of “Design Methodology”. There will be a special focus on the PhD-Programm this year. On July 19, Prof. Dr. Ralph Bruder and Prof. Dr. Cordula Meier will be lecturing the PhD students on important information and requirements relating to research projects in design and will be available for questions revolving around this topic. On July 20, this will be followed by a two-day workshop for PhD students on “Design Methodology” with Prof. Keiichi Sato (Institute of Design, Illinois Institute of Technology Chicago). For all those interested in acquiring intensive insight into the Zollverein School MBA course, there will also be a Lecture Day. Zollverein School lecturers will provide information relating to their events and will be available for questions regarding the MBA course. The detailed “Zollverein Summer School 2005” programme can be found on the Website: zollverein-school.de
