Conference – “Accelerating Design-driven Innovation in Lithuania”
Lithuanian Design Forum and Design for Europe would like to invite you to attend our first ever event in Lithuania entitled Accelerating Design-driven Innovation in Lithuania. This conference takes place at the Arts Printing House in Vilnius on 18 Nov 2015 and aims to increase awareness and understanding amongst regional policy makers and public agencies as to design’s role in innovation and its economic impact.
We have just begun an exciting collaboration with the Design for Europe, to accelerate the take-up of design-driven innovation in Lithuania. As part of this critical process, we would like the opportunity to meet with you, to better understand the context for design at a policy level and how it is being used to strengthen economic growth and prosperity in the region.
This is a fantastic opportunity to hear from a high-level, international panel of speakers.
