Curiosita is one of the Da Vinci principles referring to “an insatiably curious approach to life and an unrelenting quest for continuous learning.” (Gelb, 1998)
The Curiosita Forum is a monthly colloquium for contemporary thinking on the Management of Technology, Innovation and People in a systemic context, hosted by Faculty of The Da Vinci Institute. The forum takes the format of a vibrant round-table discussion that consists of two parts. Firstly, a student speaker presents their research to those in attendance, with the aim of receiving input on their research methodology. Then a guest speaker from industry presents a discussion focussing on TIPS.
