Course Description

DesignCORE - Research & Enterprise (CORES)

DesignCORE supports design innovation within the SME sector in the region. The centre has also taken a lead role in building research and collaborative capacity between design educational providers nationally.

The designCORE research group is at the forefront of academic design-led thinking nationally and IT Carlows leadership contribution to emerging knowledge and practice within the discipline is acknowledged. In June of 2014, designCORE initiated the Product Design Research Ireland (PDRI) network and hosted a National Symposium of Leading Researchers from across the University and IoT sector. This set out to scope national research capacity and activity within the discipline and to build a national enabling framework for design research collaboration. Proceeding from this initiative, IT Carlow hosted a national Irish Design Research Conference, co-funded by ID2015-Year of Irish Design in June 2015. It is intended that this should be a biennial event.

DesignCORE is working to broaden its research, industry and agency collaborations to achieve the highest level of critical, creative, innovative academic, commercial and social impact.
