As part of the process of review of previous literature and studies related to our project “Design Value: The Role of Design in Innovation”, we attended the European Design Days the 24th to 26th September. This event hosted by ERRIN (European Regions Research and Innovation Network) was held in the Microsoft Innovation Centre in Brussels. The focus of this event for this year was on the “economic value of design” and “how to help young designers and enterprises to benefit from design”. During the event we had the opportunity to share our project discussing with academics and researchers from Design School Kolding, University of Southern Denmark and Delft University between others. A particular interesting talk in this event was carried out in the second roundtable of the conference around the EU-funded design projects done during the last years, and the next European policies and funding for design.
