Design in technology research

Research institutions often face the challenge on how to best translate their scientific discoveries into commercially successful products and services.

So how can design speed up technological research’s journey from the lab to the marketplace? The UK’s Design Council and the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council teamed up to find out.

Six researchers joined forces with six designers to look at opportunities for commercialising technologies ranging from intelligent cameras to laser imaging.

This Design Council publication details what happened. It also reports on a debate that gave designers, researchers and others the chance to debate the big questions around design’s role.
