Key issues are presented by help of two on-going research programs. “D2i – Design to innovate” is a practice driven research program focusing on design for innovation and growth. The overall aim of D2i is presented by head of D2i secretariat – Thit Juul Madsen, Kolding School of Design. The aim, themes and activities of the analytical unit are presented by Poul Rind Christensen, IER. A beta version of a model on organizations’ design capacity is shortly presented and participants at the seminar are invited to discuss prospects of the model. Read more about the project here.
