With four months to go until the DRS conference, plans for the next PhD By Design event are well underway. We are delighted with the amount of applications that we’ve already received and the variety of discussants who have agreed to take part.

Following the one-day event with up to 60 practice-based PhD researchers, we’ll be circulating critical questions for the DRS community through a range of different formats: social media, print and through the third issue of the PhD By Design Instant Journal.

It will be interesting to see how the DRS conference engages with these questions - can we facilitate discussions across different generations of design researchers throughout the week?

If you can’t make our event on the Monday (27th) or don’t get your application in on time (deadline is Sunday 6th March) we’ll be setting up a PhD By Design Hub as a working space where you can hang out and make connections throughout the conference.

Looking forward to Brighton!
