DESIGN FUSION – the digital event of the Interreg project, Tripod-II
02 February 2021
Design Fusion is an opportunity to offer an inspiring programme and a privileged framework for exchanges to a diversity of actors: VSE/SMEs, designers, the press and the authorities of the Hauts-de-France, Wallonia and Flanders.
The current context pushes us to organise this event in a digital way, but interaction and inspiration have remained priorities for the Tripod-II organising team, thus allowing it to open up access to a wider audience. The event will benefit from French and Dutch interpretation.
This second edition of the biennial event also marks the closure of the Tripod-II project, an opportunity to assess the project, to inspire through cross-border collaboration and to present the actions of each partner in continuity with this project.
The programme for the day:
9:00 – 12:00: Workshop “Best practices for implementing multi-partner urban design projects”. *limited number of places
14:00 – 15:00: Press conference “Design and transnational cooperation, two tools for differentiation”.
15:00 – 16:00: PechaKucha “Added value of design and transfrontality through Tripod-II”.
16:00 – 17:30: Keynote “Can design create a global impact ?”, by Satyendra Pakhalé, industrial designer
