Project: RESILIENT URBAN ECOSYSTEMS
Funded by The University’s Knowledge Exchange and Impact (KEI) Voucher scheme, the RESILIENT URBAN ECOSYSTEMS (RUE) project aims to address sustainability and urban resilience through the creation of an international network of cross-disciplinary expertise of world-leading partners. With a strong inter-sector focus, the network aims to connect, expand, synthesise and consolidate emerging knowledge across academia and practice.

Project: TRANSDISCIPLINARY DESIGN NETWORK
External: European Institute of Design (IED) in Turin/Italy and Hochschule Anhalt/DIA Bauhaus in Dessau/Germany
Funded by the UoL Interdisciplinary Networking Funding Scheme, the TRANSDISCIPLINARY DESIGN NETWORK will jointly deliver a series of exploratory seminars/workshops, the first of which will be led by the University of Liverpool. For this event, we are proposing to organise an international symposium at our London campus in which we will be inviting leading figures from the design industries across Europe with a specific focus on UK, Germany, Italy and the Netherlands. Researchers, practitioners and innovators from different design disciplines (e.g. architecture, industrial/product design, transportation, fashion design) will share best practice conceptual, theoretical, methodological and translational innovations that move beyond disciplines and explore the emergent discourse of “transdisciplinarity” across these industries.
