HALO is one of three concepts developed by students in 2020 in the Design Factory Melbourne’s CBI A3 Program, in partnership with IdeaSquare CERN.
Established by Design Factory Melbourne (DFM) Director Prof Anita Kocsis at Swinburne, with Prof Tua Björklund from Aalto University, the Design Factory joint PhD program started last year.
Design Factory Melbourne joined Design Factories in the Global Network in November for the annual International Design Factory Week (IDFW) to share best practice and plan future international design collaborations.
In the first collaborative project following the signing of an MOU between Design Factory Melbourne (DFM) and Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO), two honours students in the DFM global program have redesigned beamline user cabin spaces, used by scientists at the Australian Synchrotron.
Swinburne design students have created concepts to reduce tyre dust levels and micro-plastics found in our waterways.
A collaboration with Japanese manufacturer Yanmar, the Kyoto Institute of Technology, the SUGAR Network, and Design Factory Melbourne has created a time-saving product for organic farmers.
