Introduction

More than ten years ago, Switzerland’s MA programmes in design started organizing an annual conference that is specifically dedicated to the research part of the student’s MA theses. Initially the Junior Design Research Conference (JRC) was part of the Swiss Design Network symposia, while 2021 is the 11th edition of the JRC as an independent event.

The aim of the JRC is to foster a student-led approach. Therefore, presenting students are asked to shed light on the knowledge gap that their projects are dealing with, their research methodology as well as the intersection between practice and theory.

In view of the students’ prospective careers, we invited representatives of the major Swiss institutions dealing with design to present their programs of support and awards: the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia, the Federal Office of Culture and Design Prize Switzerland.
