Design-led Inquiry for Interdisciplinary Projects

This site documents a Leverhulme Fellowship project exploring how designers collaborate with interdisciplinary partners and stakeholders to pursue technology research projects.


The fellowship aims to capture perspectives from design practitioners and researchers on interdisciplinary research cultures investigating new technologies, and to capture the design skills and practices that are valued for communication across diverse audiences.  It further aims to generate case study examples of 'research through design' practice and to demonstrate how design can produce substantive, transferable research understandings in interdisciplinary contexts.
