Most ideas don’t die, they get stuck in hibernation. Research points to some useful ways to incorporate development into a life in which empty calendar space is only a utopia.
Design Factory brings together researchers from different disciplines together to explore design, development, and innovation from a wide variety of disciplinary perspectives and with diverse methodological approaches. Inside ADF you can find both in-house researchers supporting the development of the ADF platform, and other design and development interested researchers from Aalto University. The research community is an ever-changing and developing group of enthusiasts from different fields who have a passion for development, working in close collaboration with students, teachers, industry and the public sector.
The in-house researchers at Aalto University Design Factory represent a variety of fields: Tua is from cognitive and work psychology, Maria C from educational sciences, Miko from mechanical engineering, Maria M from management, Senni from industrial design… We combine these perspectives in attempt to better understand development efforts and how to support them. Our research efforts build a basis for long term development. All of us work also in developing the ADF platform and its practices further in order to both effectively translate research results into practice and ensure the relevance of theoretical endeavours.
In addition to our work within the Design Factory and the Design Factory Global Network, we are also currently running the following research projects:
