Some projects are led by the Helen Hamlyn Research Associates – new design graduates from the Royal College of Art who work collaboratively with business, academic, public sector and third sector partners.

Funded research projects are larger, more strategic collaborations, led by more senior and Post-Doctoral researchers, and externally funded by the UK Research Councils, the EU or industry consortia. See list of research partners here that we have collaborated with since 1999.

PhD projects are also a growing feature of the centre.
