National College of Art and Design (NCAD) have announce a research scholarship focused on Design for the Circular Economy as part of its new MA Product Design programme. This €10,000 scholarship, which is funded by the Eastern Midlands Waste Region and supported by the Rediscovery Centre, will cover tuition fees and will provide support for materials and conference attendance.

They are looking for people with a degree in Product Design (or a related field) and a desire to use design to transform and transition towards a circular economy. The successful applicant will use design research to build a better understanding of the barriers to a circular economy and will propose new design solutions for potential product service systems related to effective resource management. The project will be based between the NCAD Product Design department and the Rediscovery Centre in Ballymun.
