ServDes 2014
Service Design and Innovation Conference at Lancaster University

9-11 April 2014

ServDes, the Service Design and Innovation conference, is the premier research conference for exchanging knowledge within Service Design and Service Innovation studies.

Born as a yearly Nordic conference, ServDes has now become a bi-annual international event with the aim of bringing researchers and practitioners together to discuss, share and evolve the emerging discipline of Service Design, and design-related service innovation.

The next edition, to be held at Lancaster University, will explore how Service Design is contributing to ‘Service Futures’ and, by doing so, will reflect on Service Design directions as a field. 

Sign up for this conference now on the ServDes website.
