NEW DELHI, FEBRUARY 23: A Memorandum of Understanding was signed between the School of Design at the University of Limerick, Ireland and the National Institute of Design, India, in order to develop current research and teaching activities and to facilitate the exchange and mobility of staff members, researchers and students.

This partnership aims to build on these strengths to further enable graduates to be global citizens, design entrepreneurs, community design facilitators and some of the industry leaders into the future.

The signing of the partnership agreement between NID and the UL School of Design aims to provide a further studypathway for undergraduate design students to further their studies while learning from each other’s sociocultural contexts in India and in Ireland. It also aims over time to build a shared design research capacity through joint supervision of research, exchange of faculty and researchers.

Elaborating on the association Dr. Adam de Eyto – Head of School of Design, University of Limerick, said, “Our interests in design are very similar but are social and cultural contexts are each distinctly different. This provides us with a unique opportunity to collaborate with our NID partners, to learn from each other and develop new design approaches to positively influence our fast changing world.”

The Agreement was signed on behalf of the National Institute of Design by Activity Chairperson of International Programmes at NID - Prof. Praveen Nahar & the Officiating Director Prof. Vijai Singh Katiyar and on behalf of the University of Limerick by the Vice President Academic Affairs and Student Engagement - Prof. Kirsten Mey and Head of the School of Design, Dr. Adam de Eyto.
