Dear members of DesignResearchNetwork,

we are sad to announce that DRNetwork has closed down on 15th of February 2016. The technical progress has simply been too costy and tedious to keep up with for a non-profit initiative such as the DRN. It has grown old and is now at an age to retire from its active service.

We appreciate your commitment to a friendly and fair scholarly debate in design research in the past. It is thanks to your contributions that DRNetwork could become a place for a constructive and helpful exchange of thoughts and arguments. It is our hope that DRNetwork added its modest part in supporting young design researchers in their search for help and answers.

After the close down, the content will not be lost. We are currently compiling the feature discussions and interviews into a PDF document that will be available later on the DGTF web site. The download link will be made available under this address when we are ready.

Kind regards,
Katharina Bredies
Network manager
on behalf of the entire project team
