Discover the project tracks v4

Have an existing project in mind? You are invited to apply for the Good Design Research Grant by submitting a self-initiated proposal that explores these areas:

1. Identity & Culture

How might good design promote social cohesion, or foster a sense of identity and connectedness? Projects within this cluster may explore emerging contemporary identities, modern interpretation of ethnic cultures and crafts, or community-based participatory design that encourage ownership and interaction.

Example: 

2. Systems & Processes

How might current systems and processes be re-designed to achieve global goals like sustainable development? Projects within this cluster may explore new craft methods, as well as manufacturing, prototyping processes or the adoption of novel systems models that have ecosystem impact.

Example: 

3. New Technologies (Material/ Digital)

How might we design bold new products, services and experiences through the adoption of technological and digital advancements? Projects within this cluster may explore new materials, application of robotics, artificial intelligence, virtual and augmented reality or IOT.

Example: 

Interested to apply for the Good Design Research Grant?

Applications for the Good Design Research (GDR) grant run twice a year usually in April and October. Get notified of launch dates when calls for applications launch.
