European Design Innovation Platform

The Design Council has today issued a Press Release indicating the success of its consortium in winning the tender for the delivery of the European Design Innovation Platform.

Congratulations are due to the Design Council as the consortium lead in achieving this against strong competition as well as to Commissioner Tajani and the European Commission for taking the step to create yet further opportunity for design to become more closely embedded in the everyday behaviour and practice of the European industries. Under the European Design Innovation Initiative, over €10 million has been invested in design programmes since its launch.

This critical mass of projects, both strategic and tactical, offers the chance for design to be better understood and more accessible across Europe. This should hopefully increase the development and uptake of design policies across all Member States leading, as a consequence, to the better integration of design across the private and public sectors of Europe.
