Institute of Sustainable Design – End of programme review (2015)

Evaluating a programme supporting product design enterprises for the Institute of Sustainable Design

Commissioned by the University of Wales Trinity Saint David, CMI undertook a final evaluation of the ISD programme. ISD provided support to enterprises seeking support for product design. The programme funded the installation of a range of advanced design equipment (CAD, rapid prototyping etc.) and the establishment of a design lab at the University, and provision of specific graduate enterprise support to design graduates. It also funded specialist design advisors at both the University of Wales Trinity Saint David, and business development staff.
The evaluation research included a survey of individual and business beneficiaries, interviews and a workshop with programme management and delivery staff, and case studies of business beneficiaries.
