Since several years, local and national governments use design (service design, experience design, design management, UX design, design thinking, speculative design ,etc.) to better associate users to the design of new services or facilities, produce creative scenarios about the future of a territory or a public policy, or to assist the transformation of an administration. After some years of experience, what is the feedback of the stakeholders , and what can be the horizon for the future of such a movement ?   WE NEED YOUR EXPERTISE ! Ministry of Culture and  Ministry for Economic & Finance of French Government are launching a programme called “Assises du Design*” (Design Assembly) addressed to the national main design stakeholders, with the aim of producing proposals and a vision to the Ministries, in order to build a national Design policy.
