​​What is Design for Collaborative Cities (DxCC)

DxCC is a design research program, self-organized by DESIS Network, which involves several design schools around the world that work at the crossroads of city making, social innovation and design. More precisely, it is a group of projects (called: Thematic Cluster – TC), which adopt similar hypotheses of work, exchange experiences and aim to ​​produce an open and shareable design knowledge.

The program is conceived as a series of local projects developed in parallel by different DESIS Labs and a series of DxCC events (conferences, seminars, workshops), with different focuses and different formats, organised in different places. Local projects and DxCC events interact with each other, feeding each other with experiences and reflections.
The DxCC has a duration of 3 years, between January 2018 and December 2020.
