It sets out to be a bridge between the worlds of science and technology, art and culture and to address complex societal problems through co-creation.

We work closely with our partners in the Bureau of European Design Associations (BEDA) to assist our members, the wider Irish design community and any industry stakeholders who are interested in becoming involved with this Europe-wide design process.
