A design policy for Europe? Design Wales take part in the discussion
The Innovation Policy Workshop – Design as a tool for Innovation took place on the 26th and 27th June in Marseille, France. About 20 people from different countries in Europe were invited to join this meeting, organised by the European Commission - INNO-Grips. The objective was to get a better view of how the use of design can help tackling the challenges encountered by European companies and society today and to come up with concrete proposals for European action in support of design. In support to the discussion, Gisele Raulik-Murphy, Design Wales researcher, was invited to attend the workshop and present results of her current studies on design policies around the world. Conclusions of this meeting will be edited by INNO-Grips into a report which will help during the public consultation for the need of a design policy on European level.
