DESIGN FORUM (EDF)
The EDF network aims at presenting a dynamic forum
for European cooperation devoted to the exchange of
knowledge and experience in the area of design.
Through the programme of its activities, the EDF network
wants to extend research and knowledge in the field
of contemporary design in Europe as well as develop
close connections with design centers, museums, schools
and academies, taking into account the evolution of
design at a professional, educational, cultural, economic
and societal level.
Moreover, the EDF looks forward to underlining the
innovative character of design in Europe corresponding
to a contemporary way of thinking. Design is envisaged
in relationship to management, communication, education,
museography, and culture.
The EDF will also pursue a critical reflection on European
design today in order to raise awareness on the issues
related to this matter and on the possible solutions
to be implemented.
