How does Design builds bridges between Research-Business-Education ?

Since 1998, the Biennale Internationale Design Saint-Etienne has been offering training and transformation experience for the public through exhibitions and event programming. The biennial showcases visions of design, combining technical culture, creators’ productions and international expertise. Over the years, this major design event has played a role for the international community in discovering themes that reveal certain states of the world. This process has been bringing about social and economic change for over twenty years.

At a time when Europe is laying the foundations of the New European Bauhaus, and as a complement to the biennial's programming, this week dedicated to research, education and training gives designers, schools, universities, companies, and networks the opportunity to share practices and build together the foundations of lifelong education and practice in design.

Inspire, Is the design-research an accelerator of mutations and progress for the business?

Place: Théâtre of the Biennale / Cité du design

Companies are opening up and transforming themselves through the design research that takes on its own subjects and is nourished by the links it maintains with the academic world. How does design research take root in companies? 
Inspire will take an initial assessment of the situation by bringing together members of the community of design researchers integrated into companies and higher education and research players who work with companies.
The Seminar is organized with the support of EDF Pulse Design of the Innovation Department of the EDF Group.

Place: Théâtre of the Biennale / Cité du design

A half-day organized by the Cité du design-Esadsein cooperation with National Association of Higher Schools of Art (ANdÉA) aims to demonstrate that the New European Bauhaus initiative is a European and a global opportunity to strengthen links between research, education, companies and networks, and to support them tomove towards positive dynamics and to use design as a driver of transformation.
The first conclusions of the co-design phase of the NEB initiative show that education and lifelong learning are the bases for the transformation. Moreover, learning by doing, method applied in artistic higher education institutions, is key to imagine and prototype new solutions.

Dzing-Dzing - Design research under the influence of drawing (Part 1)

Place: Auditorium of the Esadse
Drawing can give form to a field of research, influencing the design process itself. It activates a semantic of forms, writings and grammars that reveal meaning and thereby animate and disrupt the research process. How does this happen? How does drawing, through its action, disorient or reorient design research? What does it say about the status and state of this research?
On the occasion of this first part, the research team of Problemata proposes an aperitif to present this platform.

Registered participants only.
Simultaneous translation in English

P-R-E  Practitioner Researcher Educators - IxDA Cumulus

Place: Théâtre of the Biennale / Cité du design
Organizers : IxDA &Cumulus
Practice - Research - Education: the dialogue established between the digital design professionals of IxDA and the educational and research communities represented by the Cumulus association continues in Saint-Etienne on the occasion of the Biennale with a session on the interactions between research approaches in design and with design and the reality of professional practice. At a time when the professional community of designers balances between rigour and modelling of user behaviour in their interactions with digital systems and the creative opportunity to create new experiences, it seems appropriate to question the relationship between research practice and exploration of digital cultures, their effective impact on the practices of professionals and, in return, the adequacy of the research questions in the face of the reality on the ground.

Thursday 19 May, 10h00 – 12h30 CET
