SAVE THE DATE - DESIGNSCAPES mid-term conference: “Towards a Green Paper on Design Enabled Innovation in Cities”

Designscapes is an EU funded, H2020 Coordination and Support Action whose primary aim is to exploit the generative potential of urban environments to encourage the uptake, enhancement and up scaling of Design Enabled Innovation by enterprises, start-ups and SMEs, public authorities and agencies, NGOs and other stakeholders. Designscapes cordially invites you to take part in their mid-term conference: “Towards a Green Paper on Design Enabled Innovation in Cities”, which will be held on Friday 17 May. The Designscapes project would like to involve a broad European audience, starting from the representatives of the European associations and networks that are sponsoring this event, into the co-creation of the main action items to be highlighted in the Green Paper for the attention of European, national and regional policy makers engaged in the topics of urban development, diffusion and “democratization” of innovations and design. The core topic of the conference will be how to give a push to a document (the Green Paper) that will be put in consultation until - indicatively - end of the year. If you would be interested in attending the conference, please refer to the announcement of the conference in attachment.
