Research Group


The ‘Design and Social Transformation’ Research Group arises from the ideology of the Bau Centre Universitari de Disseny de Barcelona, and from the recognition of an interest and a concern shared by its faculty and research team. GREDITS was established in 2010 by a multidisciplinary group of teachers from the Degree in Design to create a collective research space in order to analyse how social changes affect the shape and concept of design, and how a contemporary designer can contribute actively and creatively to social transformation. Research projects in the areas of culture, society, communication and innovation are studying this interaction in conformity with pre-established lines of research.
