Institute for Design Research and Appliance
The Institute for Design Research and Appliance (IfDRA), based at the German Design Council, was founded in 2020. The aim of the institute is to provide a forum for all areas of design research. In this sense, the IfDRA sees itself as an interface as well as a cooperation and networking partner for workshops, conferences and research projects. Furthermore, by conducting and publishing studies and surveys, the institute aims to create a continuously growing, valid database on current topics and developments in design and design research.
