Logo Strate Research

Strate Research, the Design Research and Innovation Department of Strate School of Design, was created on the vision that Design and Research are both identified by economical and political instances as major levers of differentiation, sustainable development and value creation.

Hence the absolute necessity that designers start doing research in order to build a fair, simple and beautiful world for tomorrow. Under the transversal approach of Experience, design research at Strate acts in projects in an active, situated and committed way.

The anchoring in the design practice nourishes and embodies the corpus of knowledge. While design is everywhere, we need more than ever to question its objects, practices and challenges.
