These are just two questions that Design to Care: a two year funded project by Marie Curie is seeking to answer.

In this lunchtime session Helen Fisher will share some of the insights gathered to date in terms of what people have identified as being important.

She will discuss some of the methods the research team have developed and explore some of the possible ways forward.
