Education, education, education

Posted by: Helen Walters on May 29, 2007

The Royal College of Art in London has already made a name for itself with the Helen Hamlyn Centre (see our piece from a few months ago.) Today it announced the creation of a £5.8 million ($11.5 million) multidisciplinary centre called Design-London at RCA-Imperial. It’s a collaboration between the RCA, Imperial College and the Tanaka Business School which aims to bring together the disciplines of design, engineering, technology and business. As the blurb puts it: “research will explore how design can be more effectively integrated with business and technology to create world-beating products and services.” 65% of the funds came from the Higher Education Funding Council for England, while the aim is for the unit to be self-sustaining within three years. It’s a solid commitment to education, and acknowledgement of the importance of design to business (and vice versa). Good way to start the week.
