This summer you could take part in a two-week design project, investigating the future of mobility from the perspectives of planning, infrastructure, building design, industrial design and transport design.
The project, which is supported by the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, will take place at the University of Liverpool in London, from Monday, 26 June to Friday, 7 July.
This is an opportunity for you to join academic and industry experts from a range of disciplines in a live, multi-disciplinary design project seeking solutions to “real world” problems. It is designed to stimulate creativity, innovation and collaboration, while opening up new experiences and networks to boost your future prospects. You will also have the opportunity to visit the City and the London New Designers Exhibition.
The aim of the project is to contribute design interventions that will stimulate low carbon and low emission mobility. The outcomes have the potential for direct application into policy design and strategy for urban environments.
The project is open to second year undergraduates (those entering third year in September 2017) studying in the following Schools / Departments:
- Industrial Design
- Geography and Planning
There are 24 places available. If you are successful in your application, you will need to pay £25 to take part in the project, however your travel and accommodation will be provided.
To apply, please email your CV and a statement explaining why you would benefit from and why you are well suited to the project to Professor Richard Barrett. Your statement should be no more than 200 words. The closing date for applications is Monday, 8th May 2017.
