This paper and the research project it is talking about are “work in progress”. We give an insight into the subject of creativity in intercultural teams looking for innovative products. Our project aims not only at the identification of creativity indicators and facilitators but also at a better understanding of the necessary –individual and collective –competencies. We set out by presenting the results of our literature review and our research methodology. Then, we pass on to an example out of our qualitative data where diversity and humor become explicit creativity indicators and facilitators. Finally, we give an outlook on the next research steps.
