About this event

This workshop addresses the research-practice gap, a fundamental issue in design research. Despite efforts and intentions, design researchers struggle to make their projects more relevant for design professionals. In this workshop, we will share insights from our research in which we studied the value for design practice in collaborative research projects. We invite 8 - 10 participants with ample experience in such collaborations to further validate the model that we developed. Participants can be academic design researchers who have collaborated with design professionals in their projects, and professionals from design industry who have joined in research. By reflecting on their own experiences with the model, the participants acquire practical guidance to make their own projects more effective for design practice.
