Anna Whicher explains how the Design Policy Monitor framework is used to influence policy.
In the Action Plan for Design-driven Innovation, the European Commission encourages all European countries and regions to integrate design into innovation policy and develop design action plans. However, building effective national and regional capacity for design is not clear to policy-makers.
Clusters are a key part of BEDA’s strategy to 2021; find out about the latest developments in each area here.
Clusters are creative groups formed by BEDA members with recognised expertise in particular areas, for instance in User Design, Design for All, or Design Policy. Members gather and communicate information relating to their particular sector with other members, strengthening BEDA’s position – and that of its members – as a repository of applied design knowledge.
