Insights (aka AHA /Eureka-moments) are at the centre of reports about creative processes that lead to profound innovations, genuine new solutions to complex (scientific) problems or artistic masterpieces. The talk deals with methodological issues of an “in-vivo-in-vitro” approach to studying insights in real world design settings. Additionally the concept of “enabling spaces for knowledge creation and innovation” will be introduced, linking a process and context perspective on the (im-)possibilities to increase the likelihood of insights to occur.
