Grantler’s Corner 2022 >>Design > Research > Economy<<

  • Panel discussion
Pavillon 333
Türkenstraße 15, 80333 München

Discussion on the profiling of design research – what potential does design research offer for business and research? What professional opportunities are there for designers who conduct research?

The Grantler’s Corner 2022 continues the discourse on the role of design research in a multi-perspective manner. While last year's event addressed the question of which academic structures are needed to raise the profile of design research and further establish it as an independent, scientific discipline, this year's Grantler’s Corner is dedicated to the professional opportunities for designers who conduct research: Where are the interfaces to the research areas in companies and institutions? To what extent do suitable positions have to be generated first, or is the only alternative to founding one's own start-up in order to do justice to the new professional profiles? How can the potential of design research be communicated and made visible to other disciplines? What needs can be met in research and business? What future-oriented fields of work and research can be generated from this? What skills do designers who want to work in design research need? The discussion is aimed at designers and representatives from business, research, education and politics.

The informal discussion format Grantler’s Corner was initiated by Sarah Dorkenwald and Hannes Gumpp. The Grantler’s Corner is derived from the Bavarian word "Granteln" and the ideal of the democratic Speakers' Corner and addresses current topics of the design industry in Bavaria.

The format is sponsored by the Bavarian State Ministry of Economic Affairs, Regional Development and Energy.
