Research Collaborations

Research at Umeå Institute of Design aims to develop the design discipline by extending its existing practices and forming its future foundations. We aim to be at the forefront of addressing how design can, and needs to, evolve in response to changes in our social, technical and ecological contexts.

In our research programmes and research projects, collaboration is fundamental: with other academic environments as well as with non-academic organisations, companies and people. For more information, please see our design research pages.

If you are interested in collaborating with us in research-related fields or topics, please contact our research director.
