A talk with colleagues from UCL and the Royal College of Art

March 2021

Anne Odling-Smee took part in a two day workshop at UCL’s Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience to discuss the challenge of multi-disciplinary collaborations.

We shared our experiences and tips on the whys and hows of design-science collaborations, describing how we help teams to discover greater purpose, clarify information, communicate complexity, engage with new audiences and make learning and new knowledge a pleasure!

Scientists and designers have so much to learn from each other and even more to gain through working together.

The workshop highlighted that understanding each other's process seems key to building and maintaining successful collaborations.

A really interesting presentation, and great to the examples and use cases!
