DESIRE is an Initial Training Network funded by the
European Comission, Framework 7 under Marie Curie Programme

The network aims to make theoretical contributions to the field of creative design by bringing together expertise in human computer interaction, psychology, arts and design. The network aims to advance our understanding of creativedesign processes applied in the scientific and technological problem solving.

This will lead to the elaboration of:
* theories and models of creative processes in general, and those involved in creative problem solving in particular
* methods, techniques and systems to support both creative design processes and creativity training

Desire offers an attractive training programme to 13 researchers consisting in expert research supervision by world leading researchers, access to training courses on foundation and advanced topics in creative design, access to complementary training and industrial secondments within network’s over 10 industrial partners, as well as participation to networks’ summers schools and conferences.
