DRDThe project Dynamisation of Research in Design (dRD) aims at collaboration between companies and design schools based on the connection between design research and innovation. The model of research proposed and developed encourages the realisation of doctoral thesis in a context guided by the needs and demands of innovation coming from companies. dRD wants to contribute to the creation of an open work space, that may be lead and shared by all the institutions devoted to design promotion and education. dRD promoted the transfer of knowledge and techniques that may be applied on research projects where design is the main driver for innovation. The project was lead by BDIC, and has involved professors from EINA, ESDI, ESDAV, UPC and UB. +
