Policy & EU Matters
Eagerly awaited, last week the European Commission published the Action Plan for Design-Driven Innovation. Mr Antti Valle officially launched the action plan on Thursday 26th September at ERRIN Design Days 2013 in the Flemish Parliament, in which a number of BEDA members participated. This Commission staff working document is the culmination of significant efforts by BEDA and its members to enhance the strategic value of design within the EU innovation policy agenda. It represents a further step along the road to holistically integrating design into EU policies and funding programmes.
The European House of Design Management project began at the end of 2012. The EHDM aims to effect knowledge transfer from the private to the public sector by developing new resources for design management. The resources can co-exist and be integrated into existing structures and DM models.
The European House of Design Management is a new Europe-wide design management project aiming to improve knowledge transfer from the private to the public sector. The project will build on successful design management (DM) processes and behaviours within the private and corporate sectors, and will adapt a set of three DM tools to develop design management competency in the public sector.
