Abstract

How can the value of design research programmes be understood and communicated beyond the immediate economic measures of impact often requested by funders? This has been a central concern for four UK Knowledge Exchange Hubs for the Creative Economy, and representatives from each Hub will illustrate how their research programmes have approached this challenge to open a discussion and elicit the experiences of others.Through a dialogue between catalyst speakers’ and participants’ perspectives, the conversation will explore and propose complementary descriptions of design research value (‘beyond impact’) and practical considerations for its demonstration.

Beyond Impact: Understanding and Communicating the Value of Collaborative Design Research

How can the value of design research programmes be understood and communicated beyond the immediate economic measures of impact often requested by funders?
