DESIGNSCAPES: Design-driven urban innovation

DESIGNSCAPES (Building Capacity for Design enabled Innovation in Urban Environments) is a Horizon 2020 project of which Politecnico di Milano is a partner. 

The project intends to exploit the generating potential of urban environments in the highest possible number of European cities to encourage the adoption and enhancement of design-driven innovations, applying that to services, products, processes, business models, systems and organisations, thanks to the collaboration of existing businesses, start-ups, public authorities, agencies and other interested parties.

Designscapes strives to enhance urban innovation in which the design idea revolves around an involvement of the user, leading to the creation of a mix of products and services that answer his needs by improving the efficiency of the public and private sectors.
