What we do
Design for Europe is an initiative to support design-driven innovation across Europe. It was initially co-funded by the European Union as part of the EU's Action Plan for Design-Driven Innovation. Design for Europe is being delivered by a consortium of 14 design organisations, universities and business support organisations from across the EU, led by Design Council (UK). Europe's economy needs innovation to grow. As a group, we know that design plays a significant role in achieving this. While some European countries and regions are world-leaders in this field, others are just beginning to embrace design as an economic driver. By sharing knowledge, experience and skills Design for Europe aims to strengthen the European design community of practice, and ultimately equip businesses, public sector organisations and policymakers with the tools they need to innovate.
