UTS Design Innovation Research Centre

The Design Innovation Research Centre (DIRC) partners with a broad cross-section of industry, community and government to disrupt traditional business practices and mindsets to develop capability for complex problem solving. Given our transdisciplinary focus, we do not reside within a faculty but form part of the UTS Creative Intelligence Strategy.

The DIRC team is committed to the use of research as a tool to disrupt traditional business practices. Our work creates new opportunities for innovation, drives company growth and encourages our partners to reframe existing organisational challenges in new and exciting ways. 

Partnering with DIRC offers exciting potential for industry organisations of all sizes and across all sectors. We work with our industry partners to develop design-led research that expands their products and services, business models and people engagement strategies.
