IDE wants to continue to position itself as a leading educational and design research institute. To achieve this we need to be constantly active at the forefront that leads design research in contributing to design practice and the training of future designers.


At IDE we believe that by creating insights in people, their lives and in society, and developing foresights on how technology can improve our future, we enable designers to be inspirational yet realistic leaders that can move the needle towards a better future.
