GCM's Research Labs

Design and Learning Research Lab 

The Design & Learning Research Lab is organized around design and education research. In addition to academic studies that explore teaching and learning in/through design, the lab initiates student/community collaborations through the Centre of Participatory Design and Student Engagement. Furthermore, it cultivates dialogues for advancing design pedagogies for social change through its biennial conference Design Education and Justice.

Sustainable Packaging Research Lab 

The Sustainable Packaging Research Lab conducts research that contributes to the creation of sustainable packaging systems and design. Specifically, its research theme is based on the concept that sustainable packaging solutions can only be achieved when mechanical interactions between packaging components during distribution, environmental performance of different packaging systems and design, and human-packaging interactions are quantitatively examined in a system-based design manner.
