Design Open Day: Sustainability

15 September 2022 - 15 September 2022

Express your interest in joining us at this design open day and find out more about sustainability, circularity and regenerative design alongside other researchers and innovators in the community.

The Design Innovation Network is charged with bringing together challenge holders and insightful design to solve complex innovation problems. Sustainability, circularity and regenerative design are top of our agenda.

The UK has some of the world’s top design capabilities and a world-leading research and innovation community. In order to bring these groups together and catalyse some new activities and breakthroughs, we are piloting Design Open Days.

The first Design Open Day will be hosted by the University of Sheffield Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) on Thursday September 15 2022, from 10am – 4pm.

The AMRC have outstanding engineering product design capability but are also keen to build relationships with and learn from wider design disciplines. Specifically, non-technical design disciplines, service designers, communication designers, systems designers and ecosystems designers.

Designers, across disciplines, with a passion for inclusion, sustainability and mic are encouraged to express their interest in taking part.

At this stage, we are looking for:

Challenge holders who are interested in exploring their opportunities from diverse perspectives.

Expressions of interest from the design community. We are particularly interested in hearing from non-technical design disciplines, service designers, communication designers, systems designers and ecosystems designers.

If you are a designer open to collaborating with research technology organisations or their partners to address some of the global challenges we face, please express your interest.

Expressions of interest for this design sustainability open day closes on Thursday 30 June 2022. Invites will be sent out on Friday 15 July 2022.
