After the six conferences for artistic and architectural research CA²RE+ has contributed substantially to the fact that design-driven research today is a widely established and scientifically accepted research method on most European countries and the number of involved universities is an indicator for a rapidly growing community in the field of practice-based research. This big effort has meant an interchange of knowledge and at the same time the construction of an international net with very valuable connections. We have created a collective learning environment where we have developed a multidisciplinary approach to a design-driven methodology on scientific research along six steps: observation, sharing, comparison, reflection, reformulation and recommendation, that arrive now to an end, or at least to a preliminary evaluation after this three-year journey. In this final book we collect and share the results of the last two events (Ljubljana and Delft) and the recommendations and conclusions from all partners participating in the whole process.
