The results are ‘Post Ford Probes’, new concepts for services and models which connect business strategies with the skills of Ford Genk employees.
Interviews were conducted on the Ford factory site and followed by an intense workshop where participants developed scenarios for new forms of local economics, mobility, craft and culture. All scenarios suggested new models for near-future socio-cultural and technological shifts and were designed to stimulate discussion and debate.
