EAD 11 (France, 2015)

Paris Descartes University hosted the 11th International Conference of the European Academy of Design Institute of Psychology from April 22-24, 2015.

THE VALUE OF DESIGN RESEARCH

Design today is increasingly being recognized as creating value – whether for cultural and collective intelligence, for embedding new technology into new behaviours, for fostering or acting as a force for change in societies and for companies confronted with complex problems. This value is based on design research within a large variety of settings and scientific backgrounds.

The gestalt of the conference is “the whole is more than just the sum of its parts”. Taking this principle to heart, the conference brought together all stakeholders in design research and design process innovation. University labs, design schools, and R&D departments from industries were invited.
