Journal publication remains central to the dissemination of research and acknowledgement of credibility through peer review. As funding bodies start to require evidence of impact for ‘non-academic beneficiaries’, this paper presents approaches employed by the author to generate additional outputs from industrial design research. Case studies identify resources to support the commercialisation of technology and collaboration/communication during product development. Whilst challenges exist, industrial design appears to be well placed to identify, execute and exploit emerging opportunities.
