Invitation to the International PhD Forum

Research within the Design Society community offers many possibilities of exchange and collaboration between fellow researchers. While these opportunities cover a broad scope from young researchers to senior members of the community with a range of research interests, we aim to support the specific needs of PhD students.

PhD Forum

On Wednesday, 18thth August: 11.00-13.00 Central European Time (CET)


To foster the exchange of ideas and research approaches between younger researchers

To provide opportunities for discussing personal research topics, methodologies and potential problems with experts

To enhance networking and collaboration 


The forum will be an opportunity for PhD students to discuss their research questions and ideas with their peers and experienced researchers in order to support their research. Small discussion groups will be organised in Zoom. Discussion groups will consist of 4 PhD students and 1-2 experts. 

Participating students will be asked to give an elevator pitch introducing their research prior to the discussion. The presentation should be 5 min, covering the following questions (you can use slides for this):

1.     What will be the impact of your project?
2.     What is the theoretical foundation for your work? (If possible provide a research framework in a figure)
3.     What is the theoretical gap to be filled? (If possible provide your specific research question)
4.     What overall research approach and specific methods will you use? (If possible provide a figure or flowchart)
5.     What are the main risks or research challenges you face?

Only 20 students will be accepted on a first come, first serve basis. Signup at the link below:
