As part of Future Observatorys ongoing open call for the Design Ecosystem Fellowships programme, we are hosting an online Q&A session for any interested applicants. Join Justin McGuirk, (Director, Future Observatory), Cher Potter (Curatorial Director, Future Observatory) and Harry Kerr (Senior Investment Manager, AHRC) for a drop-in Zoom Q&A to learn more about the programme, design ecosystems, our plans for sharing and disseminating research findings and more.

The Design Ecosystem Fellowships are funded awards for up to six researchers to map transformative design ecosystems in the UK. 

The aim of the scheme is to highlight the strengths and weaknesses of production systems that support environmental sustainability, circular economies and waste reduction – a process that is key to achieving UK and global net zero targets.
