Design Exchange Partnerships (DEPs) are three-way collaborative projects which bring together early career design researchers, an academic supervisor and a non-academic organisation, such as a small business, NGO or public sector organisation.
The partnerships seek to demonstrate tangible impact on local communities by stimulating the real-world application of high-quality arts and humanities-led design research to address challenges related to achieving green transition goals.
The full economic cost (FEC) of each project can be up to £62,500 for six months or £125,000 for 12 months, plus a five to 10% contribution from the non-academic partner organisation. The Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) will fund 80% FEC.
