At DesignLab UT, all our efforts are geared towards making a positive impact on people's daily lives. Together with our many partners, we translate societal challenges into research questions and practical solutions by applying science and technology. The common thread in our myriad of activities are our three focus areas:

Citizen Science
Practising science in an open way, including the general public from the start

Responsible Design
Putting society's needs first in the development of new technologies

Transdisciplinary Approach
Creating new perspectives and insights by merging disciplines and experiences

These themes are interconnected and together make for DesignLab's characteristic way of working. They contribute to realising the goals of Shaping 2030, UT's strategy to build a new type of university by 2030.
