The aim of the Service Design Research UK (SDR UK) Network of the Network is to review and consolidate the current state of Service Design knowledge within the field of Design.
Three workshops and three Advisory Board meetings formed the basis of the Service Design Research UK Network. Delivered and supported by practitioners and academics, each workshop consisted of case studies and activities to illustrate and discuss the diverse nature of Service Design practice and research in the UK. In addition data was gathered for an online database on current Service Design research projects, PhDs and academics, together with Service Design curriculum and government bodies supportive of Service Design.
Drawing together the outcomes from the workshops, Advisory Board meetings and online database, SDR UK participants co-authored twelve short pieces to high-light emerging research areas that culminated in the formulation of research questions and final recommendations.
