QUT Design Lab

Design is no longer just the pursuit of creating objects or artefacts. It is a method and a research approach able to drive Australia’s National Innovation agenda.

Harnessing this potential, the QUT Design Lab employs bold, fresh, and rigorous design-led research to tackle major societal challenges across health & wellbeing, community, sustainability, social entrepreneurship, and culture & environment.

Acting as a hub and home for a diverse team of academics, research students, and industry professionals, the Design Lab supports transdisciplinary collaborations that result in tangible impact and engagement, and which transfer knowledge and technology into beneficial applications for industry and society.

Our mission is “Change by Design.”
