The Good Design Research (GDR) initiative empowers local designers and enterprises to experiment and innovate through design research to address complex and global issues. The initiative highlights the significance of how design—when anchored by deep research—can make a true difference in innovating for real world problems and expanding boundaries of knowledge.
GDR provides support to designers and enterprises in the form of seed funding, developing their unique proposition, potential business opportunities and access to an ecosystem of partners and mentors. Challenge statement partners create potential business opportunities by engaging designers with real world problems. Resource partners offer expertise that enhance designer research and innovation capabilities for new value creation. Showcase partners provide a platform for designers to showcase their work, extending their reach to the public.
