The Road Jam is a 48-hour Global Service Jam taken on the road.
We will be jamming innovative service solutions while driving from Berlin to Rome.
On 1 March 2013, people who are interested in service and using a design-based approach to problem solving and creativity will meet all over the globe. In a spirit of experimentation, co-operation and friendly competition, teams will have 48 hours to develop brand new services inspired by a shared theme. On Sunday at 3pm, they publish them to the world.
We will be driving from Berlin to Rome in 48 hours, while jamming on the way. We will start with the Global Service Jam Berlin on March 1st at 17:00 where the theme will be announced at 18:30. We will then drive to Münchberg (330km) while brainstorming – having dinner on the way – where we will stay the night.
Getting up early on Saturday, March 2nd, we will drive to Nuremberg (130km) where we will be for breakfast at 09:00 and join the morning presentations. After that we drive to Munich (170km) while doing our initial research. Re-Fueling, re-stocking and joining presentations after lunch in Munich, we will then go for 550km to Milano while conducting synthesis and ideation, as well as first prototyping and validation. Arriving late in Milano we will join presentations of ideas and prototypes, party, and sleep.
Then leaving very early (06:30) on Sunday, March 3rd, we will keep prototyping on our way to Roma (600km) where we will join uploads and final presentations, as well as After Jam Party. Drive back to Munich / Berlin will be on Monday, March 4th.
