The next edition of EU Design Days will take place on 25 November 2020 in Brussels. This year the topic will be “Social Design & Civic Engagement”. We are therefore looking for proposals in the fields of social dimension of design, civic engagement and co-creation.

If you would like to actively organise the EU Design Days with us and present your project from the above-mentioned areas, please fill in the call for proposals, which you can download here, and send it to and by 19 June.



After several successful events, Design Days has become a concept and a brand recognized by the key players within design at European level and the European Commission. Design Days provides you with an excellent opportunity to brand your region as one of the top-European regions when it relates to design. By being part of Design Days 2020, we will dedicate online visibility space for you and your region, and we will invite you to present essential design initiatives going on in your region.

Design Days break borders between different sectors. Several speeches, breakout sessions and networking opportunities offer the chance to share experiences, elaborate on challenges and learn about each other’s success stories. By doing so the EU Design Days format organically creates a unique platform where researchers and designers come together with stakeholders, policy makers and SMEs form from regions all over Europe. 

This distinctive concept enables all participants to walk away with not only new contacts and possible new partners, but also with valuable input to tackle current challenges in an integrated manner. 

The Design & Creativity Working Group

The event is an initiative of the ERRIN Design & Creativity Working Group, which aims at promoting design and creativity as tools for innovation. We present it as a relevant approaches to tackle different (societal) challenges, showcase the importance of innovative creative solutions through practical examples, create a strong and vital community among our stakeholders and shape opportunities for working group members to develop their project proposals. Furthermore, we would like to stimulate the cooperation with the different Directorate Generals of the European Commission and the European Parliament.
