Radical Research Summit

September 27–30   |   Join us online

What is RRS?

The 6th Annual Radical Research Summit (RRS) creates a unique opportunity to connect with the North American UX research community. RRS will take place virtually, from Vancouver BC in the Fall of 2021. Radical Research brings together exceptional speakers from large technology organizations, start-ups and academia. 

This year talks will be held over 4 days in two-hour morning/mid-day segments. Our new schedule is optimized for the web conference format and provides new opportunities for speakers to engage with the attendees.

RRS is attended by over 250 design researchers, UX practitioners, ethnographers, product managers and businesses. The focus is on issues and topics that directly impact design research practices today and guide us to the future. 

Why Radical Research?

  • Continually evolve research approaches and methods and be at the forefront of change in UX research – this year we are encouraging content that engages the technological and social movements that we are living through at this unique time. 
  • Share research approaches, techniques and ideas around human-centric product and service design.
  • Facilitate the growth of a strong research community across North America.
  • Connect to other UX research practitioners, businesses and academics.
  • Demonstrate how research supports business growth, innovation and ethical approaches to human computer interaction.
