A few words about us

Who are we and what’s our story?
Smart Design Research Group adheres to the working definition of interdisciplinary research, proposed by the ‘National Academies’ report; “Interdisciplinary research is a mode of research by teams or individuals that integrates information, data, techniques, tools, perspectives, concepts, and/or theories from two or more disciplines or bodies of specialized knowledge to advance fundamental understanding or to solve problems whose solutions are beyond the scope of a single discipline or area of research practice.
