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.
