Sharing Design Knowledge in a Commercial Context
A Design Research Society National Symposium
The symposium presents an opportunity to reflect on the application of research into design in the various contexts with which researchers engage. Transfer of knowledge, both between disciplines and into commercial applications will also be discussed as well as the nature of stimulus found through such collaborations.
