DesignLab’s organizational structure consists of a Management Team led by a Director, three co-directors and a Manager. An advisory board looks over, advises and supports the team. First Line support and Operational Team help to keep DesignLab running smoothly whereas the Tech Team is responsible for maintaining the workshops and any technical enquiries from students, staff and visitors at DesignLab. The DreamTeam project and operational coordinators are mediators between management, staff and other DreamTeamers, ensuring seamless project kickstarts and collaborations.

DesignLab’s community is expanded by Research Fellows from the University of Twente. The Fellowship consists of researchers based at various faculties of the University of Twente, that value creativity and transdisciplinarity. They share DesignLab’s vision and want to use it as a platform for researching, teaching and learning. Together, the DesignLab Research Fellows work towards exploring, understanding or solving societal challenges - often within the context of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

All the activities that are showcased to our network at University of Twente and beyond are communicated by the Marketing and Communication team.
