In the framework of the “DesignShots” project funded by the Horizon 2020 programme of the EU, KEPA together with LuxInnovation and Malta Business Bureau has launched the Design Support Programmes Survey. The consortium wishes to explore recently launched Design Support Programmes across Europe and the advantages that they can bring to SMEs. Through this exercise the consortium will also be able to support Innovation Agencies in designing and implementing Design Support Programmes for the private sector.
Design Shots - Design-Driven Innovation for SMEs project is implemented in frame of the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme (H2020) under grant agreement No 759629. The project relates to the work programme topic “Peer learning of innovation agencies INNOSUP-5-2016”.
DesignShots is a 1-year project, launched in April 1st, 2017. The aim of the project is to collaboratively address a common innovation support challenge; namely to enhance the integration of Design Driven Innovation to SMEs through the creation of tailor made “Design Driven Innovation support programmes” for private sector.
As a first step, we are mapping existing and planned Design Driven Innovation Support Programmes for the private sector. Therefore, we encourage you to share your knowledge and experiences with us in this field. Your organization and your study cases will be highlighted in the “Design Options Paper” that we are producing.
