The Responsible Innovation Hub

ReIn Hub Image for top of webpage

We build collaborative environments for design journeys that help us see the systemic and dynamic settings for societal challenges and understand the difficult decisions we face amongst competing factors and compelling priorities. We are concerned with the patterns of practices and behaviour that maintain and challenge system structures. Our task is learning how to recognise patterns and challenge them both in social and technical systems and our individual lives.We bring together a multidisciplinary community of academics, scholars, partners and members of the public to build the conditions where everyone can play a part in designing and committing to journeys towards a world of common wellbeing and equity. We connect institutional areas of expertise through an expandable series of studios for design-led projects; creating opportunities for students to experience vertically integrated multidisciplinary challenge-focused authentic learning.
