The objective of this call for proposals is to accelerate the take-up of design in innovation policies at European, national and regional levels and to promote the increased use of design in European industry as well as in the public sector to promote value creation, competitiveness and efficient use of resource.
In particular, emphasis is put on closing the divide between the advanced regions and those lagging behind in applying design-driven innovation
This call for proposals invites applicants to plan and implement a coherent set of actions to boost the adoption of design in innovation policies and to support the creation of capacity and competencies necessary to deliver these policies. This set of actions will be called the European Design Innovation Platform, and fall under the framework of the forthcoming Action Plan for Design-Driven Innovation. (More information on this action plan will be given in 2013 on the website of DG Enterprise and Industry: http://ec.europa.eu/enterprise/policies/innovation/policy/design-creativity.)
