EHDM is composed of a consortium of six partners: the BEDA members European Design Centre (NL), Design Business Association (UK), Estonian Association of Designers (EE) and Danish Designers (DK), along with Umbria Trade Agency (IT) and Innovhub (IT). In anticipation of one of the final outcomes - a Design Management toolkit for public sectors - the project partners are organising a series of workshops across Europe focusing on each of the three key public services: medical/health care, public administration and transport.
The first sectorial workshop took place in April in Milan and focused on transport. With the workshop, project partners wanted to gather valuable insights and learn about the key challenges facing public administrations delivering services within the sector of public transportation and mobility. The workshop acted as a guide to ensure that the outputs will have maximum relevance and value for managers across public sectors in Europe.
The other sectorial workshops coming up:
- Perugia, June 2013 - Second sectorial expert workshop focusing on business support, entrepreneurship and internationalization of SMEs.
- Tallinn, September 2013 - Third sectorial expert workshop focusing on public health and social services.
In the beginning of February 2014, a prototype resource will be presented for enhancing project management in the public sector through inspiration from good Design Management practices.
