  • To carry out research and design practice projects with the other research groups of our university.
  • To increase awareness of design and to enable at different levels the application of design in all kinds of institutions and organizations accepted as our partners.
  • To contribute to building a foundation for more qualified design education.
  • To strengthen the connection between design academics and the industry.
  • To reinforce ties between practicing designers and academics by establishing collaborations.
  • To discover new lines of business for designers and to increase the employment of designers in the industry.
