The second issue of SEE Bulletin, the only publication entirely dedicated to exploring matters related to design policies and programmes for design support across Europe and beyond, has just been released and it’s really good! A ‘must’ for anyone interested in issues concerning design and innovation policies.

Contents include a research paper by Prof. John Heskett ‘Aspects of Design Policy in History’; ‘Good Design Selection’ from Korea as an integral part of the government’s innovation and procurement strategy; ‘Better by Design’ from New Zealand, a government initiative to expand the country’s economy through the successful design to export businesses and a snapshot of world design policy news from Argentina, Australia, Canada, Costa Rica, Iceland and Qatar, and to top it off the ‘Design Policy and Promotion Programme Map’ that offers a global perspective on the growing number of increasing maturity of design policies and promotion programmes.

The Bulletin is available for download at the SEE project website here

SEE is a network of eleven European Partners sharing knowledge and experience on how design can be interated into regional, national and European policies to boost innovation, competitiveness, sustainability and social and economic development. The SEE Bulletin is produced by Design Wales.
