The 2021 DFP CREATE Showcase is brought to you by:

Designing for People (DFP)

DFP is one of several established Research Excellence Clusters at UBC. A network of design-thinkers, DFP accelerates creativity at the nexus of social and technical problem-solving, by promoting interdisciplinary teamwork and methods, finding new paths to societal impact through partners and community, and creating resources that are sharable by DFP researchers and partners.

DFP CREATE Grad Training Program

A core component of the DFP is our CREATE grad training program – a unique, cross-disciplinary graduate training opportunity developed at UBC. Masters and PhD students from participating units across campus bring their disciplinary knowledge and work together in a variety of program elements including hands-on project experience with external partners, to develop research and professional skills and holistic design understanding.
