Inter-disciplinary design and research has its own opportunities and complexities compared to that of a single discipline.
The organisation of people and funding are more complicated and there are often confusions as to what are inter-disciplinary
and multi-disciplinary or cross-disciplinary teams. In this event several people were brought together with the purpose of
discussing and clarifying some issues. The event will be useful to all who are interested in designing outside the boundaries
of individual design disciplines from undergraduate students to researchers, and especially those from
product design, 4D design, multimedia design, design management and communication.
