Professor Paul Chamberlain MdesRCA

Co-Director C3RI, Head of Art and Design Research Centre, Director of Lab4Living and Director of Design Futures

Summary

I am Professor of Design, Co-Director of the Cultural Communication and Computing Research Institute, Head of the Art and Design Research Centre, Director of Design Futures and Co-Director of interdisciplinary research group Lab4Living. I led the 2014 REF submission for UoA 34 and have been submitted to every RAE/REF since 1996. My interests lie in designing and developing tools and methods to encourage and engender social innovation and apply this with a focus on healthcare, disability and ageing. 

My work explores the multi-sensory aspects of design and the role of artefacts that define pertinent societal questions as much as present solutions. I have led major interdisciplinary projects securing over £3m of funding from diverse sources including the AHRC, EPSRC, Innovate UK, NIHR, Health Foundation, Marie Curie, British Council, EU, RSA and Royal Society NZ. I have delivered keynote and plenary lectures at leading international venues on innovation strategies and sustainable approaches to design and manufacture that have played a significant role in supporting regional post-industrial reconstruction. I am a graduate of the Royal College of Art and was co-founder and director of London based FLUX Design Ltd.
