Joint actions for non-technological, user-centred innovation: 1st Action Plan of the European Design Innovation Initiative

News in RSS

The present call for proposals aims at improving the impact of innovation policies by speeding up the take up of design as a user-centered innovation tool in national, regional and EU innovation policies.

Main issues to be addressed by the call for proposals are:

  • to develop a joint vision, joint priorities and joint actions for non-technological, user-centred innovation with participating countries and stakeholders;
  • to mainstream design into innovation and better integrate design and user-centred innovation approaches into innovation projects, policy, support across Europe;
  • to raise the awareness of design and user-driven innovation and the use of design for economic, environmental and social purposes;
  • to improve the circulation of experiences and good practices in the area of user-centred innovation and design in innovation policy.

The specific objectives of the call are, in particular:

  • To allow mutual policy-learning and transnational cooperation by testing the transferability of best practices ("learning by doing"): between experienced actors (already implementing design innovation policy) towards actors willing to become active providers of design innovation support services.
  • To mobilise national, regional and European support providers towards Design Innovation support.
  • To tap on creativity and expertise of support providers and policy-makers to benchmark different approaches and methodologies towards design as a user-centred and market driven innovation tool.

The deadline for the submission of proposals is 10/10/2011.
