Policy & EU Matters
We asked BEDA members about their experience of the 6th edition of EU Design Days, held this September in Brussels.
We asked participants about the highlights of the EU Design Days event for their organisations:
Laure Capitani of Wallonie Bruxelles Design Mode said that she benefited from access to a range of agencies supporting design/innovation, to be able to exchange information, best practice, and points of view; this leads to growth of personal networks.
We report on the second BEDA Insight Forum, held this month in Brussels, which looked at design as a driver for policy innovation and social change.
BEDA held its second Insight Forum on November 10th in the European Parliament, hosted by MEP Miltiadis Kyrkos (S&D). The event aimed to highlight the value to the EU of design thinking and innovation in policy-making.
We report on the inaugural ‘Lab Connections’ conference hosted by the European Commission this October
Policy Labs are multidisciplinary teams developing public services and policies using innovation methods to engage citizens in the development process. There over a hundred Policy Labs worldwide, and around 65 in Europe.
