Innovation research, education & practice
Meaningful innovation happens at the intersection of different disciplines where the knowledge, know-how and expertise of multiple actors comes together around a common cause. The more diverse those actors, the more surprising the results. I believe that design plays a critical role in nurturing creative confidence and facilitating fusion in these multidisciplinary situations.
I am confident that our research will bring to the fore design-led methods and tools that will deliver a step-change in innovation capacity for the CDIT sector in the North East and beyond.
