DESMA - A European Flagship project

News: Sep 14, 2017

According to the evaluation of European Commission the DESMA project has been a great success. From the report: “… the programme has supported the development of a new generation of design management researchers with the capacity to move between academia and practice as well as across disciplines. In addition to research skills, they have developed strong communication and leadership skills, contributed to raising the quality and profile of the field and built extensive international networks. Their career prospects have been significantly strengthened.”

The European Commission further writes that: “For the companies, the results have included a new understanding and vocabulary for discussion how design contributes to innovation internally, new or improved work processes and services. For example, one company is developing an internal research centre to be launched later this year, with the aim of becoming one of the three main pillars forming their offering (see http://liveworkstudio.com/intelligence/ ).” .. “For the university partners DESMA has contributed to developing methods and skills for designing and conducting experimental multi-disciplinary research projects in collaboration with industry, as well as for novel ways of engaging with the public for communicating research.”
The value of DESMA to partners, ESRs and advisory board members is summarized in the video DESMA Experiences http://www.desmanetwork.eu/desma-experiences/

“Finally, we can conclude that DESMA has indeed become platform for research in the intersections between design and management, academia and practice in Europe - and beyond. A large number of academic researchers, practitioners and students have been engaged in the discussions on the critical issues of the field and informed about the research within DESMA. The events and communication activities have generated a extensive interest in taking part of the next phase of DESMA.”
