SEE Project Final Conference


Policy, Innovation & Design

29th of March 2011, Flemish Parliament, Brussels

The SEE project is a network of eleven partners in Europe engaging with regional and national government to integrate design into policy, particularly innovation policy. The project runs from September 2008 to June 2011, co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund through the INTERREG IVC programme.

Since the project began, SEE has organised a number of workshops with policy-makers on themes such as design in innovation policy, design for sustainability, evaluating the return on design investment and bringing innovative ideas to market through design.

This conference is the projectís final event and aims to provide delegates with an overview of designís role in innovation, recent design policy developments in Europe, examples of successful design policies and promotion programmes. The programme will be opened by Polish MEP, Jan Olbrycht with reflections on design as part of the Europe 2020 strategy. During the day, the SEE project lead partner will also briefly present the projectís achievements over the last three years.

This is a free event but delegates are required to register.

Time: 09:00am
