Design Research Centre
The Design Research Centre promotes the execution of research projects seeking to produce both knowledge and practices. With a firm foundation in industrial creation, its primary aim is to conduct research programmes that look into the current structuring of scientific knowledge, technical developments, and social transformations.
It is led by the École Normale Supérieure Paris-Saclay (ENS Paris-Saclay) and the École Nationale Supérieure de Création Industrielle (ENSCI-Les ateliers).
Université Paris-Saclay's Design & Science Prize
Since 2016, the Université Paris-Saclay - Design & Science Prize has been bringing together design students and engineering students to develop innovative projects based on an annual theme. For a semester, the students work together on a project in concrete terms, from initial idea to detailed design.
