About the Design Innovation Research Centre

The Design Innovation Research Centre is a new 'Challenging Engineering' exploration group, set-up to lead research that develops novel engineering solutions for shared design inquiry and funded by Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).

If you would like to read an overview of the Centre, please download our Information Leaflet.

The vision is of a new mode of design in the digital economy. Innovation in design is necessary in construction, to sustain UK competitiveness and address climate change. Achieving this will involve making digital design models more accessible in conversations between designers, manufacturers, assemblers, clients and users.

The research is developing new tools and processes for the design of buildings and infrastructure in the digital economy. The Centre is a new kind of engineering research laboratory, an open and networked laboratory, which is inter-disciplinary, international and engaged with industry.

As well as the core members, the centre has a network of associate members and advisory boards
