As the digital transformation of society continues to
accelerate, the DCODE research network hopes to contribute
to sustainable solutions by exploring and proposing design-driven
ecosystems for our digital future. The programme aims to develop
future researchers and leaders capable of anticipating and guiding
the digital transformation of society.
The PhD researchers appointed will be working in sectors that
cut across private and public sectors, and connect domains such as
urban mobility, energy sharing, health and care, insurance, banking
and digital ethics.
The signature of DCODE is the idea of prototeams. Teams of PhD
researchers with different disciplinary backgrounds will be
iteratively deployed in different real-world contexts to develop
and prototype future design roles and practices.
A programme of training will be provided including core research
skills, design research methods, public engagement and
communication, participatory leadership, responsible innovation,
digital inclusion and literacy, gendered perspectives and
legal/policy issues around Artificial Intelligence.
This will be delivered in collaboration with a network of
internationally leading companies and organisations including
Philips/Design Innovation, RISE/Digital Ethics, AMS/Responsible
Urban Digitization, Advance Care Research Center/Legal &
General and Centrum Cyfrowe/Communia.
