WHY BE PART OF DESIGN DAYS 2019?

EU DESIGN DAYS – A BRAND YOU CANNOT MISS …


First organised in 2012, the Design Days have become an annual event focusing on different topics, such as the support of young designers, the economic value of design and digitalisation & design. The event  tresses the added value of using design (methods) in tackling societal, economic and environmental challenges in an efficient and effective way.

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.
