Future Design Practices
The responsible and sustainable digital transformation of society requires new post-disciplinary and cross-sector design practices, upholding anticipatory, deliberative, and responsive innovation approaches.
How will we prototype responsible design practices in the digital society?

An ethics-in-action framework for designing data-driven product service systemsThis project explores how ethical standpoints can be leveraged and enacted across the four design challenges identified in DCODE, from engineering autonomous systems and designing their interaction with multiple users and stakeholders to leveraging new economic and governance approaches in system implementation. The expected outcome is a reasoned collection of best practices upholding principles of inclusivity, deliberation and sovereignty in the design of data-driven product service systems.
Prototyping new professional roles and design practices for the digital societyMugdha Patil
Prototyping new professional roles and design practices for the digital societyThis project is about identifying the postdisciplinary knowledge and skills needed for future collaboration across different disciplines and sectors in the field of design, with focus on prototyping new professional roles and developing speculative job profiles. In this project, we explore how the iterative deployment of small teams with different disciplinary background in real-world settings (“prototeams”) enables us to speculate, situate and understand the emerging and future needs of responsible and inclusive design practices.
