The Danish Design Centre, in collaboration with Copenhagen Business School’s Public-Private Platform, is inviting a select group of policy makers, public managers and academics to discuss the expanding field of design. Both from a research and practice perspective, we see how design is going beyond industrial design to service design and to design for policy.  As an approach to working systematically with change, design methods are now offering a different way of policy making: User- centred, experimental, iterative and visual by nature.

While we at the Design Centre and the CBS Public-Private Platform think we are on to something important, we recognise that it takes a village.

Therefore, we want to co-create this new model of systematic experimentation with leading policy makers, public managers and academics and we now 
invite you to join us in leading the experimental policy revolution for a full day in Copenhagen.

The Aim is twofold:

  1. To contribute to the emerging practice of systematic policy experimentation
  2. To identify the key research agendas that can take the field even further.

Throughout the day we will explore case studies and insights from our own work and globally from a range of leading organisations and academics, in order to shape a future agenda for design-driven policy experimentation.
