Conference theme: 

Fostering applied design-led innovation capabilities: how do we know we are doing it better than any other subject?

Watch this link for Call for Papers during October 2017:


The world we make defines us: so we better make good decisions!  Increasingly, applied design-led innovation capability is a sought after new generation skill-set combining creativity and technical knowledge required for both industry and community life.   From emergent play to sophisticated pioneering capabilities, this international event asks:

  •  ‘What must be the reformed vision for design and technology education that assures its future as a necessary and highly invested field of learning?’
  •  ‘How can design and technology assert itself as the lead provider of applied design-led innovation capability? A capability that uniquely develops the integrated mind and fosters innovation attributes that last a pupil’s lifetime.’
