Research funding for the Design Star Consortium

We are very happy to announce that the Design Star Consortium, a collaboration between the University of Reading, Loughborough University, Brighton University, the Open University and the Design Department at Goldsmiths, has been awarded £2.2 million in funding by the Arts and Humanities Research Council.

The AHRC funds will be matched with similar amounts from the universities and will be used to support around 60 PhD researchers over the next five years, a great investment in the design research of the future. You can expect to hear more on this from us soon, but until then, you can read the official press release from the University of Reading HERE.
