Activities from infosyon network related to the upcoming Conference in Vienna

Focused on the upcoming Congress in Vienna "The World of Economics Needs New Dreams" 24 - 26 July in Vienna, we have planned an interesting pack of activities for our international network in order to go preparing this international event. 

First we will have Virtual Meetings (hangout videoconferences) with some of the keynote speakers. Furthermore, we will have our 2nd Inspiring Days (Infosyon Network Simultaneous Practice Interchanging Resources and Ideas for Nurturing Globally), a local base activity connected globally. And finally, as a part of the Congress on July 25th (15:00 CEST) we will have the International World Café where we will mix presential and virtual participation around a central question.

Virtual Meetings with keynote speakers

  • The first meeting was May 4th. Prof. Felix de Mendelssohn spoke about "Dreams and Innovation" and how to work with social dreaming. See the video recording of this meeting at meeting 1
  • Thursday, May 28th, a meeting with Thomas Gehlert on "Quantum effects in the constellation work". Link: meeting 2
  • Tueday, July 7th, "Systemic approach in politics. Neos, the first systemic party." Link: meeting 3

The Meetings are in English and start at 15:00 CEST (UTC/GMT +2 / check your local time).

2nd Inspiring Days

In the first week of June (1 - 7) we will have our 2nd Inspiring Day. This will be centered around the theme of the Conference "The World of Economics Needs New Dreams". Different nodes around the world will work locally replicating the same activity in different places and then evaluating the results as an action research. We will share these results at the Congress.

Our 2nd inspiring days is taking off: We have already three local nodes convening this event:

  • Brazil (Sao Paolo):                         May 30th
  • Spain (Vitoria-Gasteiz)                  June 5th 10:00- 17:00
  • Peru (Lima):                                   June 6th  9:00 – 13:00

Anyone else wants to take part in this action research? Please join us. As you know our proposal for the program of this local event is this:

  • One activity about "social dreaming" that will be the same for all nodes. In this video Prof. Felix de Mendelssohn explains how to do it: video
  • A second activity about "Quantum effects in the constellation work" that will connect works between nodes. To be explained in next video conference by Thomas Gehlert on May 28th
  • And any other free activity about Which dreams are needs in the Business? To be designed locally.

If you want to host one of this local nodes in your city/country, please contact us. We will provide you with information about the activities proposed in those workshops and support you. Please contact nice.lazpita(at) 

We keep on co creating!

International World Café

As part of the Congress on July 25th (15:00 CEST) there will be an International World Café activity, where we will mix presential and virtual participation around a central question. We will physically set tables in the room, where conference participants can discuss, and a virtual one, where participants worldwide will be able to join by videoconference and to co-creating together.

Video-conference of the General Assembly of infosyon

This time we also will try to provide virtual access by means of a video-conference during the General Assembly of infosyon (16:45), for those members who would like to participate from the distance (Let’s see how it works). 

We will upload further information of these events and links on ,  and on infosyon Facebook page:  

Please check for updates. 

So you can see that we have a full pack of chances to share, learn and co create. Just join us!

Experimental workshops for Systemic Constellations 2015 started in Ansbach / Germany

The aim of the infosyon Research, Development and Transfer group is to open the method of system constellations to theory and practice, to establish its scientific foundation. Members of the research network of Jürgen Rippel (Ansbach University), Prof. Dr. Georg Müller-Christ, University Bremen) and Ursula Kopp (Vienna University of Economics) are carrying out a series of experimental workshops. Their goal is to expand their findings for the benefit of consultants and their clients, developing templates for a more effective use of the method.

The first workshop with Jürgen Rippel on creativity, intuition and innovation was held on Thursday, 26 March 2015 at the University of Ansbach. read more

Further scheduled workshops include:

Theme: A prototype for the application of management constellations to projects
Date: Wednesday, 27 May 2015; Location: University of Economics in Vienna/ Austria; Registration
: Ursula Kopp

Theme: Working with structure images

Date: Friday, 2 October 2015; Location: University of Bremen; Registration: Georg Müller Christ

Threefold effectiveness - the Heidelberg Study on Systemic Constellations

In the Heidelberg study, 208 subjects were monitored, over a period of three years, to examine the effectiveness of constellations. The focus was on three areas: general psychological well-being, the experience of systems, and individual concerns and goals. The authors J. Weinhold, A. Bornhäuser, Ch. Hunger and J. Schweitzer were able to prove positive and long-lasting effects in all three areas. The study was published in German in 2014 by the Carl-Auer-Verlag. A detailed book review by Ursula Kopp - also in German - can be found on our home page Link
