Master of Design Show

The Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design at the University of Dundee is presenting inspiring and fascinating Master student projects this week. The 2011 Class exhibition will last through 3rd September. SDHI will continue to work with Masters students on interdisciplinary projects in the future. Programme Director Hazel White is currently inviting project ideas that have a combined health and design focus. Please send your thoughts, project sketches to her and she will incorporate them in a ‘challenge bank’ For more details of the current projects visit Masters Class 2011 snapshots

New SDHI logo

SDHI is changing its ‘look’. Please welcome our new logo. We continue to expand our network of research partners and build ‘bridges’ across various academic and practice communities. The two universities at St Andrews and Dundee serve as its solid pillars. The interdisciplinary focus on the social dimensions of health and well-being is timely as ever, and our research tackles key problems that affect populations in Scotland and beyond. These include issues around violence, aging, dementia, disability, social inclusion, autonomy, technology and public health. Please stay tuned for further changes in SDHI’s web profile.
