New French university launches the Design Spot to back pioneering projects

Designed to support thousands of researchers, engineers and inventors as they develop ground-breaking projects, Université Paris-Saclay has launched a design centre to anticipate the needs of tomorrow’s society.

As design combines creativity and sensitivity with technology and economics to create better products, experiences or services – appealing to emotions, intuitiveness and senses to spark an instant attachment to a product or a service – it has become a crucial factor of competitiveness in a number of sectors.

That’s why the Design Spot will have three main roles.

First, it will provide laboratories, researchers and engineers with the resources to connect projects with real life applications and markets. Second, the centre will help students become more familiar with the discipline of design and encourage them to integrate it into their projects. Third, the centre will have a mission to enable research on the discipline itself.
