Making societal impact, by joining forces
Eager to connect their profession with the goals of DesignLab and having the drive to make societal impact together: we proudly present to you five researchers of the faculty of Geo-Information Science and Earth Observation, who have recently joined the Designlab Research Fellows team! Dr. Paulo Raposo, Dr. Monika Kuffer, Dr. Mila Koeva, Dr. Funda Atun Girgin and Dr. Javier Martinez. What motivates them to be part of the community?
The DesignLab Fellows Team consists of researchers from the various faculties of the University of Twente, who value creativity, societal engagement, and transdisciplinarity. For them, DesignLab is a platform to meet and discuss, to work on joint research proposals, and to conduct research projects. Together, the DesignLab Research Fellows do not only advance their own research projects, but also the overarching focus areas of DesignLab: citizen science, responsible design, by working in a transdisciplinary way. They all have a strong commitment towards exploring, understanding or solving societal challenges, often within the context of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
