Gareth Loudon will be running a workshop session next week on how technology, communications and networking can play a role for international artists based in Wales. The workshop on 26th November, is part of the Wales Arts International Symposium in Cardigan.
The PAIPR team at PDR, in collaboration with PDR’s Medical Applications Group, have secured funding for a 3 year Design Research PhD Bursary. We’re looking for a PhD student to investigate new techniques for product deployment using rapid prototype based ethnographic appraisal techniques. The focus of the work will be medical product development. The project will utilise PDR’s new user experience observation laboratory in combination with end‐users, scenarios, props and appropriate prototypes, to explore the possibilities of increased development speed and reduced development cost, whilst simultaneously producing better, safer products aimed at the specific and bespoke needs of users.
