The Design Research Society (DRS) is a multi-disciplinary learned society for the design research community, promoting excellence in design research globally:

  • recognising design as a creative act common to many disciplines
  • understanding research and its relationship with education and practice
  • advancing the theory and practice of design.

Can design direct or can it only respond? Whose values are built into the designed world? What research methods are truly participative?

If you are a design researcher interested in big questions such as these, reserve your place now for the Design Research Society’s biannual Symposium.

At the symposium you will hear presentations and debate on the work of the Society’s Special Interest Groups (SIGs). The DRS SIGs aim to facilitate debate and networking between DRS members, and to produce resources accessible to the research community.

Out of the ten SIGs, the symposium will focus on the work of four:

  • Design for Wellbeing, Happiness and Health
  • Design for Behaviour Change
  • Tangible, Embedded and Networked Technologies
  • Design for Sustainability

The SIGs are a great platform to build your topic-specific network for collaboration.
