Brunel University looks to collaborate with toy firms on industry projects
London’s Brunel University is looking to work with toy and game companies, as the institution ramps up its industry partnerships as a result of joining the Design Factory Global Network (DFGN).
In February, 2020, Brunel joined DFGN as the first higher education institution in the UK to obtain the network membership. DFGN is a worldwide association of 31 design-led innovation hubs at universities and research organisations across Europe, North America, South America, Asia and Australia.
Headed by Aalto University in Helsinki, Finland, with the members including CERN, University of São Paulo, Kyoto Design Lab and Swinburne University, DFGN promotes design thinking and interdisciplinary project-based learning through international student-led collaborative projects with major companies.
The membership in DFGN enables Brunel Design students to work on live project briefs with their peers and industry at a global scale, thus greatly contributing to student experience.
UK-based companies have the opportunity to collaborate not only with Brunel, but with an international community having an established track-record of fostering the culture of radical innovation.
