The Crossover Workshop was a collaboration between the Innovation School at The Glasgow School of Art (GSA) and the Biochemical Society to explore the potential for exchanges between design and biochemical sciences. It focused on sharing disciplinary expertise and perspectives through a series of design activities and provocative discussions in order to prompt opportunities for future collaborations.
A video and downloadable pdf capture the experiences and outcomes from bringing together eight biochemical scientists and eight designer/researchers to share their forms of practice and inquiry.
Due to the positive responses from all involved, we are now working on a Glasgow-based transdisciplinary network bid to bring the different biomedical departments of Glasgow’s universities together with the Innovation School to develop a space for transdisciplinary collaborations.
