Design and Innovation Conference

6 October, 2011 - 09:00 - 16:00
Budapest, Hungary

The Multipurpose Union of Kecskemét and its Region organized the Design and Innovation Conference in Hungary. The conference took place in Budapest within the framework of the Budapest Design Week on October 6th, 2011. This Design and Innovation Conference was already the third in the series and took place at the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design.

The aim of the conference was to strengthen the links between design and the SME's, with a particular stress on the growth of the local economies. We wanted to attract to this conference the attention of professional organisations and of policy-makers. Our hope was to create a forum which could potentially influence the EU strategies. Besides this, we wished to catalyse the enlargement of the ceative sector by demonstrating the local production and through presentation of the opportunities related to specific target audiences.

Our international speakers analyzed the relationship between the design and European economic policy and the sustainability efforts on the basis of their EU's experiences and researches. The emerging concept of the event's presentation titles was a kind of discussion starter which points out the increasingly determining economic role of design. The speakers of the topics were global-minded researchers, economic consultants, policy makers.
