Design Research Initiatives (DRI) represents the vibrant design research community in the College of Arts and Humanities.
Through the generation of texts, materials, objects and experiences, design research at Brighton addresses issues at the forefront of society, tackling the complex social, ecological and economic challenges of our time.
We develop our work in partnership with a diverse set of stakeholders such as global businesses - Philips, Puma, Heals and Veolia, major cultural organisations - Design Museum, V&A and the Crafts Council, NGO's - The Marine Conservation Society and Vision Aid Overseas and policy-making institutions - UK Government, House of Lords, NHS and the United Nations.
Our research directly shapes the curriculum; nourishing our undergraduate, postgraduate and PhD students in design, as they too nourish us with their evolving research knowledge and expertise creating a truly reflexive and inclusive partnership.
