Flanders DC promotes contemporary and high-quality Flemish design. It does this as a unit within the Enterprise Agency. Design has developed into an economic growth factor for quality improvement, innovation and turnover. Flanders DC therefore wishes to support designers as well as persuade businesses to integrate design into their company culture and production process.
The general public’s awareness of the added value design offers is also heightened. Flanders DC is therefore also focussed on guiding businesses wishing to innovate from a design product development perspective, offer guidance and stimulation to Flemish designers, and promote Flanders as a design region.
Flanders DC and Wallonie-Bruxelles Design Mode are joining forces for the next Maison&Objet trade show, taking place in Paris from 19 to 23 January 2018 with a selection of 10 brands, which will be on display at a shared stand in the NOW section.
Having mapped our Design Innovation Ecosystems and examined the Operational Programmes in our partner regions, we meet in Santiago de Compostella on 7th and 8th November to identify the best practice in financial mechanism for business and innovation support, such as subsidy and grant schemes, including innovation vouchers. This time the event is hosted by GAIN - Galician Agency of Innovation.
