According to a European Commission public consultation, the greatest barrier to the better use of design in Europe is the lack of understanding among policy-makers. Academics have provided evidence of the impact of design on economic performance; however design, unlike innovation, is not well integrated into policy. This raises the question: How can academic evidence make a more compelling case for policy-makers to integrate design into innovation policy? This research seeks to develop a framework to benchmark policies for design in Denmark, Estonia, Finland and the UK and compare what data should be collected against data that is currently available. Ultimately, this research seeks to further develop the emergent field of research in design policy and provide practical policy insight.
