designCORE duo to present seminar at McMaster University

colinPublished: November 20, 2017   

Colin Deevy, director of designCORE at Institute of Technology Carlow, and Dr. P.J. White, designCORE Research Leader, have joined the McMaster Institute for Research on Aging (MIRA) for the week from Ireland to support development of its research culture. 

Over four days, the designCORE duo will engage in a program of events that includes meetings, workshops and a seminar with lead researchers from across McMaster in design thinking for interdisciplinary research action.

At the design-led seminar entitled Incite Insight, Deevy and White will ​illustrate how a design-led approach can assist and enable better communication and provide strategies for bridging the gap between disciplines to build an interdisciplinary research culture. 

The invitation to MIRA follows a Memorandum of Understanding, signed between Institute of Technology Carlow and McMaster University in June 2017, which marked the beginning of a strong relationship between the two institutes.

MIRA has identified design thinking as a means to address complexity through interdisciplinary action and the McMaster group has partnered with designCORE at Institute of Technology Carlow to assist them achieve that goal. The rationale is to use design to support and develop a design-led culture in interdisciplinary research across all their research activities in the years ahead.
