International Association of Societies of Design Research
The International Association of Societies of Design Research was formally established on November 1, 2005.
The Association is an international, non-governmental, non-profit-making, charitable organisation.
The Association is comprised of member societies of design research from around the world.
The purpose of the Association is to promote research or study into or about the activity of design in all its many fields of application, through encouraging collaboration on an international level between independent societies of design research.
The Association will promote, amongst other activities, the organisation of biennial International Congresses of Design Research, at appropriate venues around the world.
