Design research provides the opportunity to share knowledge about users, informs and inspires, and steers the development of innovative technologies. The goal of this workshop is to explore the changing role of design research in the design process in technologically oriented projects. During the workshop, participants will share their experiences regarding conceptual, methodological, theoretical or practice-based insights deriving from their work on technological innovations and develop future personas of design researchers and future scenarios of their core activities in the projects in an area of technological innovations. We aim to provide a setting in which HCI and design researchers and practitioners will have an opportunity to explore futures of design research for technological innovations.
