    In the future, learning, informing and experiencing take place in new ways. We are designing for new forms of content, immersing ourselves in immersive worlds. What's currently in play, and what's coming?

    Health & Well-being

    We all want to be and stay healthy, both mentally and physically. Yet it is not a given that that will happen; with a higher average age and a performance society, we face design challenges.

    Equal Society

    Too often it is assumed that what is designed is accessible to everyone in the same way. This results in large groups not being involved, for various reasons. How do you ensure that design is inclusive? With, among others, a project carried by a consortium of knowledge institutions and creative industry; Active Inclusive Design.
