dc.description.abstractDesign is increasingly being recognised by governments across Europe as a factor for innovation in small to medium-sized enterprises, the public sector and society. In 2014, 15 of the 28 European Member States had design included in national innovation policy and explicit design strategies were in operation in Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France and Latvia. The European Commission has also developed an Action Plan for Design-driven Innovation stating that: "A more systematic use of design as a tool for user-centred and market-driven innovation in all sectors or the economy, complementary to R&D, would improve European competitiveness." This exploratory research aims to understand how best to use design as a method for policy development and provide input for design policy actions jointly developed with design stakeholders. Design is an approach to problem-solving that can be used across the private and public sectors to drive innovation in products, services, society and even policy-making by integrating user needs. The European Commission's action plan aims to accelerate the up-take of design in innovation policies at national, regional and local levels across Europe.en_US
