Digital Disruption

Inventing the future of digital technology together

Digital Disruption is a research network led by Northumbria School of Design where organisations and academics invent the future of digital technology together. The network does this by addressing deep, future-oriented research questions in practically grounded, result-oriented collaborative projects.

For the last two decades, digital technologies have been disrupting practically all businesses and services, creating new billion-dollar enterprises while literally bankrupting others. For many companies, this represents a huge opportunity to identify new markets and create new products. But to achieve this requires future-facing, long-term research – something which few organisations can afford to do in-house. We believe that universities offer unique opportunities as research partners, because they can address long-term, strategic research questions, and work collaboratively to develop speculative solutions to real-world problems.
