Disseminating knowledge is an important aspect of design research. Increasingly we come to understand that we not only need to share the results, but also  discuss insights gained during the research process. During the Dutch Design Week we discuss ways of dissemination with curators and readers.




 15:00 - 16:00

Moderator: Daniëlle Arets


Speaker: Daniëlle Arets

Trail of evidence
Sharing research results during the research process is crucial for engaging with stakeholders and those you design for. In the Stroompunt research project, a collaborative research project by Woonbedrijf and Waterschap de Dommel, design researchers Alissa van Asseldonk & Renee Schepers designed a trail of evidence that has proved to be a meaningful way of sharing design research.  Reader Bas Raijmakers will share his insights. 

Speakers: Bas Raijmakers, Renee Scheepers and Alissa van Asseldonk

Podcast route
The Design Academy Eindhoven (DAE) knowledge circle aims to increase the awareness of design research, for example by 'making things'.

For the  graduation show, we are producing -as we did last year- a series of 10 podcasts with graduation students whose work has an important research component. Each podcast consists of a 3 - 5 minute interview where each student explains his / her research process. In this way we focus on the research component, in addition to the visual work. Visitors can listen to the podcasts while standing next to the work of the student, or later on their mobile phones. 

Speaker: David Hamers

Creative forms of expression
“Research is a process of investigation leading to new insights, effectively shared”. Jan Ijzermans  is convinced that we need to explore new relationships between makers and researchers, and especially explore new ways of sharing and expressing meaningful knowledge in an artistic way. 

Speaker: Jan Ijzermans

Alissa van Asseldonk is a research-based designer whose basic mission is to put human experience at the centre of her work.  She is a founding partner at design studio Alissa + Nienke, specialising in researching human perception and designing materials and spaces to improve (future) daily life. 

David Hamers is a spatial researcher. He is Senior Researcher for Urban Areas at PBL Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency (Planbureau voor de Leefomgeving) in The Hague. His publications mainly deal with the development, design, and use of space within and around the city.

Jan IJzermans studied Mathematics and Music Science at the University of Amsterdam where he also did his PhD. He has been working at HKU since 1990. Currently he leads the HKU professorship Research in Creative Practices. His research aims to reinforce creative practices and the education in this field. 


Peter Joore is chair of the Open Innovation research group at NHL University of Applied Sciences and member of the Network of Applied Design Research (NADR). He holds a PhD from TU Delft, focussing on the relationship between new product development and societal change processes. 

Bas Raijmakers PhD (RCA) has been  Reader (Lector) in Strategic Creativity at Design Academy Eindhoven from 2011. He holdds a PhD in Design Interactions from the Royal College of Art in London. In addition, he is co-founder and Creative Director of STBY in Amsterdam and London.
