High quality applied academic research outputs and collaborations

PDR is a research institute within Cardiff Metropolitan University concerned with the effective use of design as a tool for innovation in the private and public sectors. We undertake applied research with collaborators from industry, academia and governments to examine and improve policy development, management and practice of product and service design.

PDR’s research was returned to the REF2014 as part of a joint submission with the Wales Institute for Research in Art and Design (WIRAD) where 75% of the submission was judged as Internationally Excellent with 23% being World Leading. In addition to the research outputs submitted, PDR made a significant contribution to impact, providing two of the three required case studies. REF2014 judged 100% of the impact of our research to be Internationally Excellent with 50% World Leading.

PDR’s research groups are experienced in both leading and collaborating on large-scale, multi-national projects funded by diverse bodies such as Research Councils, Innovate UK/Technology Strategy Board, European Projects and Charities.

Below is a selection of outputs from this work encompassing policy documents, published journal articles and academic conference papers.
