Located in the heart of Ultimo, Sydney's 'Innovation Hub', the Design Innovation research centre (DIrc) is a transdisciplinary centre based at the University of Technology Sydney. We do not reside within a faculty, we form part of the UTS Creative Intelligence Strategy.
Established in 2014, DIrc provides niche expertise in the integration of design-led methodologies and tools with traditional business practice. Our researchers are internationally recognised as experts in the disciplines of Frame Creation and Design Led Innovation.
DIrc is a wholly public-facing entity that exists to create positive change in business, social and environmental contexts. Our researchers work broadly with industry, sharing our design-led approach with a wide range of academic, public and private sector partners.
