BIDA has an active Education Special Interest Group whose aim is to identify initiatives that bring together industrial design practitioners, ID course leaders from Higher Education and the best young industrial design students.

By ensuring that ID courses are closely aligned to the needs of industry practitioners are better able to provide placements and careers. The Education group aims to help the three stakeholder groups with a space to discuss areas of mutual interest. We see this as a very important area of our work.

The Education group is led by Stephen Green from Imperial College. Stephen is a BIDA Board member and has many years’ experience in commercial design.
