Abstract

This paper explores how European Union member states are supporting the supply and demand of design to enhance their Design Innovation Ecosystems. Design is increasingly being recognised by governments in Europe as a factor of innovation. Acknowledging the major contribution of research on National Innovation System, this research proposes Design Innovation Ecosystem concept to inform policy-making in the field of design-driven innovation. It presents an overview of design support programmes to draw conclusion on possible future developments in design policy implementation instruments.

Keywords: design-driven innovation, design support programme, design innovation ecosystem
