Serendipity is fundamentally personal, human and delicate. It can change one’s life either on personal and / or community level. It’s more than anything else a mental attitude, it’s about curiosity, open minded thinking and empathy. So, can it be harnessed – or even managed in institutional contexts. My answer is YES, but it’s a challenge.

In this fantastic blog David from The Idea Hive is giving some useful tips, how to attract serendipitous encounters, ideas and moments towards you.  Diversity, sharing culture, network coherence and provocation are the key words.
