European Design Innovation Initiative Project Approval

We were very pleased to hear today that we have been successful in our project proposal made under the 1st action of the European Design Innovation Initiative (EDII) by the European Commission. "Thank you" to all of our partners in helping to put this exciting project together.

The project will continue some of the activities of the previous SEE Project but also broaden its scope with ten other partners across Europe to build a new pan-European SEE Platform that will engage with regional and national organisations currently active in innovation support and policy and help to build their understanding and use of design for user-centred innovation.

The partners for the new SEE Platform are:

Design Wales / Cardiff Metropolitan University (UK)
Design Flanders (BE)
Regional Development Agency of South Bohemia-RERA (CZ)
Danish Design Centre (DK)
Estonian Design Centre (EE)
Aalto University, School of Art & Design / Designium (FI)
Jyväskylä University of Applied Sciences (FI)
Business and Cultural Development Centre (KEPA) (GR)
Border, Midlands and West Assembly (IE)
Castle Cieszyn (PL)
Design Council (UK)

There is still some paperwork to do before the project can be officially launched - when this is done we will let you know.
