IDE Research Assessment - Signed, sealed and delivered
In autumn 2020, an international committee tasked with assessing the research of TU Delft’s Faculty of Industrial Design Engineering came to a positive verdict. Their findings are summarised in the leaflet, Collaborate and Lead. But that wasn’t the end of the story.
Since then the report has been shared with the University’s Executive Board, which welcomed the committee’s findings in its formal response: “The Executive Board is pleased that the committee considers the research quality, relevance to society as well as viability of the Industrial Design Engineering departments to be (very) good, and in some respects world leading.” The full letter is published on this page where you can also read the assessment in full.
With formalities over, and with the recently formed Research Council in place, IDE looks forward to rising to the assessment committee’s challenge: to intensify collaborations and take the lead in design research.
