Policy & EU Matters
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.
The European Commission released their keenly-awaited ‘Design for Growth & Prosperity: Report and Recommendations of the European Design Leadership Board’ report click here on 17 September this year, with a strong message in support of BEDA’s work.
BEDA’s President, Deborah Dawton, and Vice-president Isobel Roig both sit on the Leadership Board, which was formed in 2011 with the purpose of providing recommendations on how to enhance the role of design in innovation policy in Europe at the national, regional or local level; it is also developing a joint vision, priorities and actions to enable design to become an integral part of innovation policy at European level, in line with the Innovation Union.
