In 2008, when I follow this teaching, Nikolai was one of the teachers (very great teaching from him) but not Gaesto. I am still in contact with Nikolai, and also work with Severine Baudrux, Which is a belgium teacher which try to integrate TRIZ fundamentals tu pupils (following example like in"country of riddle".
That's fantastic. I have been dreaming about this course for almost 5 years, still couldn't make it due to several problems. Hope I will make it one day. I hope Nikolai is still teaching there, and Gaesto from Florence... Convey my regards to them.'
Look forward to hear your experience from the course here.
