Fundamentals of Design Competence for Our Digital Future

Project description

Training designers into decoding digital futures

The digital transformation of society, in which digital technologies sometimes replace human judgement and activities, requires a new type of design competence to ensure responsible and sustainable implementation. However, there is a gap in our understanding regarding the new knowledge and skills designers need to anticipate this transformation towards desirable outcomes. The EU-funded D-CoDE project aims to answer these questions. Bringing together a European consortium of higher education institutes as well as industry, government and civil society, the project will train 15 PhD students in design, anthropology, media studies, science and technology and data science. Small groups of PhD students from different disciplinary backgrounds, known as 'prototeams', will work in real-world contexts to develop and prototype future design roles and practices, increasing their competence and paving the way for an optimal digital society.
