The Design Council is working with other European organizations to develop a European Design Innovation Platform,  a digital platform that will bring together knowledge and examples of innovation design from across the EU, and create a space where those wanting to know more can connect with each other.

 

In a discussion led by Sonja Dahl, three industry experts: Yasushi Kusume, Laura Lee and Markus Hohl will present short visionary provocations about the future role of design leadership. This interactive session will provide an opportunity to debate, define and capture some of the key themes and topics that will form the basis of debate on the Design and Innovation Platform.

Each speaker will offer different perspectives based their own unique experiences from across a range of design sectors and industries. You will be asked to participate in the discussion and contribute your own insights that will help shape an understanding of the opportunities and challenges ahead.
