Abstract

Design research has developed strongly in recent years, but it has perhaps not lived up to its early promise. In particular, industrial impact has been patchy, and impact on public policy has been poor. This paper argues that the design research community is multi-faceted. A consequence of its breadth is that it is divided, to its cost, along disciplinary and geographical lines. An overview of the design research landscape is presented, and proposals are made for the diverse traditions of the research community to come together to create an integrated view on design research, in particular for industry and the wider community.
