WHY BE PART OF DESIGN DAYS 2020?
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.

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.
