Research Strengths

Loughborough Design School has a strong, internationally recognised research community.

Our research strengths are in the areas of safety, digital fabrication, human factors and experience design. All of our research is underpinned by responsible design.

Our world-leading research enables us to discover, explore and develop new ideas, concepts, methods, tools, services and products that contribute to a healthier, safer, more productive, sustainable and equitable world. Annually we attract over £4 million in funding from a wide variety of research councils, governments, charities and businesses enabling us deliver research projects that have real and lasting impact on the world around us.

Areas of research

Each of our projects is initiated by a team of academic and research staff.  These staff each belong to a research group akin to their area of specialism.  This group provides support and an opportunity to share ideas, resources and issues amongst colleagues who are working in similar areas.
