NordDesign 2016 Trondheim – Highlighting the Nordic approach

  • Conference Call
  • Wel­come to Nord­De­sign 2016. We are pleased to announce that Nord­De­sign 2016 will be hosted in the beau­ti­ful city of Trond­heim, Nor­way on 1012 August 2016. The con­fer­ence will take place at Nor­we­gian Uni­ver­sity of Sci­ence and Tech­nol­ogy — NTNU Trond­heim and is organ­ised by the Depart­ment of Engi­neer­ing Design and Mate­ri­als in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the Depart­ment of Prod­uct Design and the Design Soci­ety.

    In the area of inno­va­tion, design and prod­uct devel­op­ment we quite often seem to know that some­thing works in prac­tice, but might lack under­stand­ing on the the­o­ret­i­cal foun­da­tions. Many of the top­i­cal issues related to design, devel­op­ment, and inno­va­tion that seem to be regarded as “com­mon knowl­edge” within the indus­try, are insuf­fi­ciently founded from the the­o­ret­i­cal per­spec­tive. On the other hand, results of aca­d­e­mic research are not often effi­ciently dis­sem­i­nated to the indus­try practitioners.

    Lately, it has been argued, that design research has often failed in build­ing a sus­tain­able dis­course between research and prac­tice with some even call­ing for new research par­a­digms. Lack of research and under­stand­ing on some of the cru­cial top­i­cal issues and insuf­fi­cient con­nec­tion between the indus­try and acad­e­mia are likely to pro­vide poor grounds for devel­op­ing the tools, meth­ods and approaches in a sus­tain­able man­ner as well as for the edu­ca­tion of future design professionals.

    We are call­ing for evidence-​based aca­d­e­mic work on top­i­cal issues on design, devel­op­ment, and inno­va­tion that strength­ens both our the­o­ret­i­cal under­stand­ing, and the con­nec­tion between the­ory and practice.

    “High­light­ing the Nordic approach”

    The Nordic approach to design and prod­uct devel­op­ment is based on coop­er­a­tion between indus­try and acad­e­mia and edu­ca­tion which is often close and infor­mal. We see this as a very impor­tant advan­tage in global com­pe­ti­tion and want to build on this tra­di­tion to fur­ther advance the coop­er­a­tion and co-​creation between acad­e­mia and indus­try. We are inter­ested in top­ics impor­tant within and for Nordic countries.

    Researchers and prac­ti­tion­ers are invited to sub­mit con­tri­bu­tions to the con­fer­ence within but not lim­ited to the themes and top­ics pre­sented below. The full papers will be double-​blind peer reviewed. The review cri­te­ria will be the nov­elty and level of con­tri­bu­tion, valid­ity of con­clu­sions, indus­trial or appli­ca­tion per­spec­tive and for­mal qual­i­ties of the contribution.
