Call For Papers

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.
