Abertay University

The Abertay University research group are responsible for the scoping of the Sports Sector and are investigating how design and knowledge exchange can help in breaking down barriers to participation.

Our research looks at how the design and development of interactive tools can enable community growth, knowledge exchange and learning. In addition we are investigating how innovation and design emerge from the actions of collaborations such as those found in virtual communities, educational communities, face to face communities and support communities.
