The Multi-disciplinary Design Network is hosting a special event, which brings together industry and education leaders with multi-disciplinary mindsets.
The panel will consider the vital role of design in innovation and how design, science, technology, engineering and enterprise work together to create solutions and applications greater than the sum of their parts. They will be posing the question of what the future of multi-disciplinary design education and practice in our radically changing world could be.
The panel discussion will be chaired by David Kester, CEO of the Design Council. The panellists are: Sir George Cox, author of the ‘Review of Creativity in Business’, Clive Grinyer, Director of Customer Experience at Cisco Systems, Lucy Kimbell, Associate Fellow at Saïd Business School, University of Oxford, Steven Kyffin, Dean of Northumbria’s School of Design and Chris Wise, Director at Expedition Engineering.
This debate will coincide with launch of the report of the Multi-disciplinary Design Network - the group of universities who have been working on developing centres, programmes and projects that address multi-disciplinarity over the last four years. The report will include recommendations from the Network for developing the future of multi-disciplinary design education in the UK.
