What research is possible at designlab?
Designlab offers a platform for researchers with design-based questions, who wish to cooperate and translate science through design to society on a transdisciplinary level. Researchers who are conducting research on design processes and on societal impact of technology can find a place here. You can also join our Fellows network and play an active role in further developing DesignLab's research collaborations.
The Responsible Futuring Approach is a central point in the research in DesignLab. That’s why we strive for an optimal balance in the involvement of researchers from different faculties, disciplines and institutes. Dedicated international teaching- and research-teams create an atmosphere where cutting-edge nano-, bio-, robo-, cogno- and info- technology are confronted with social sciences and humanities, through real world design challenges.
This 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.
