Day 9: TDRI Taiwan Design Research Institute

Designers all over the world are members of associations. They support, offer exchange and form a mouthpiece. The projects of the members of the TDRI Taiwan Design Research Institute show how intensively design accompanies a society. At the same time, they offer an opportunity to exchange ideas worldwide, to create points of contact for cooperation and a change of perspective.

Projects by Taiwanese design colleagues at a glance: Be our guest!

Taiwan Design Research Institute (TDRI) is an integrated platform that drives the development of Taiwan's creative industry. Its main missions to enhance creativity of design talents, promote industrial innovation, accelerate the development of design policy, encourage the public service design and social innovation design, and promote the design diplomacy. TDRI has successfully established the excellent image of "Design in Taiwan" after a long term of dedicated promotion and will be continuously improving Taiwan's competitive edge on the global stage, fostering sustainable social and industrial development, and enhancing people's lifestyle through design-driven innovation.

We are very honored to have the chance to participate in the iF Design Marathon. We hope we can show the world the design power of Taiwan and create an opportunity to collaborate with others thanks to the exchange of via exchanging design knowledge through this event.
