CFP: 10th European Academy of Design Conference -­ Crafting the Future

This conference celebrates the 10th anniversary of the European
Academy of Design conferences and contributes to a  discussion on the
role of design and designers in crafting our futures.
The theme of the conference is the practical knowledge of the
designer. How can the specific knowledge of designers be brought
forward, articulated and made visible, and how can it be understood
and used in contexts like innovation, business development and
social change?
It would be good if you could contribute to any of the strands below;
the main idea is of a return to the roots of design practice as well
as theoretical frameworks that enable us to explore and further our
understanding of the role of our practice in design, education,
business and society. Go to the website and click on the strands you
are interested in and submit an abstract.
