BEDA European Design Forum: What is the future of design support across Europe? 8 June, Vilnius.
BEDA is the authority for design in Europe. Once a year, we bring those that operate in and around the design industry together to focus on a big issue. In 2017, this one-day forum asks the question: What is the future of design support across Europe?
After examining EU support for design, we look at the overall financial ecosystem to learn more about traditional and innovative tools to access finance
BEDA understands design as a creative approach to problem-solving, which can be applied across the private and public sectors to drive innovation in products, services, society and even policy-making.
