Would you like to understand how to develop products and services that contribute to the well-being of users? Would you like to have an impact on happiness? DIoPD offers a variety of collaboration possibilities for everyone in the development /design field. Examples are research projects, design projects, consultancy but also a masterclass or an intense workshop where we teach you how to use the latest happiness-driven design tools and methods (see also the projects page for examples of the collaboration projects we’ve done in the past).

DIOPD also collaborates with academic and non-academic partners in projects financed by the Dutch and European government. We offer the state-of-the-art knowledge and methodology in happiness- or well-being-driven design, and are interested in collaborations to further develop this knowledge or to refine the knowledge by applying it in real-life design cases.

If you are interested in collaborating with the DIOPD, please contact us to discuss opportunities.
