This report summarises the findings from a fact-finding mission to Asia by a delegation of academics and policy makers in April 2010. The delegation visited leading companies, universities and design studios in Beijing, China, and in Seoul and Daejeon, South Korea.

The aim was to learn from existing and developing models of multi-disciplinary education and practice to inform the development of new multi-disciplinary courses and collaborative projects in the UK. A full list of delegates and details of the meetings can be found at the back of this report.

This report adds a further dimension to the findings of previous fact-finding missions to the USA and northern Europe.
