ECA, University of Edinburgh

Edinburgh College of Art, University of Edinburgh, is one of the academic partners in Design in Action, and is leading on the ICT sector on behalf of the project. The Design in Action team based in the Centre for Design Informatics at Edinburgh College of Art (ECA) have been working within the fields of emerging digital technologies and their potential applications. Our team is led by Professor Chris Speed and includes Debbie Maxwell, Diego Zamora, Karl Monsen, and (until recently) Hadi Mehrpouya. Areas that we are exploring include the rapidly changing arena of mobile development and HTML5 web apps, digital fabrication and 3D printing, sensor-based virtual environments and remote networks and their social applications and design implications.
