BEDA, The Bureau of European Design Associations, in collaboration with Design4Innovation hosted INSIGHT FORUM with the aim to explore next practice in Design Action Plans. Namely in recent years number of governments around the world adopted design action plans, including Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Ireland, Iceland, Latvia, Sweden in Europe, but also Singapore, South Korea, Hong Kong and India worldwide. BEDA played an instrumental role in initiating European Commission’s Action plan for Design driven innovation and establishing the EU Policy Lab. Now policy officer from Tourism, Emerging and Creative industries of European Commission is reviewing design’s role in the policy agenda and redrafting a set of actions to be included in the new creative industries strategy. The mission of BEDA therefore is to promote and strengthen links between creative industries and other industrial sectors to stimulate creativity and innovation in the wider European economy.
